The National Standards for Mental Health Services (the National Standards) and the supporting guidelines aim to continually improve the quality of mental health care for all Australians. They are underpinned by a recognised need to respond to the growing cultural and social diversity in the Australian community, including the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. This diversity is reflected in mental health consumers and carers, as well as among professionals working in mental health services.
