The Board’s vision for mental health services in South Australia is that they are people-centred and recovery-oriented, so as to realise the hopes and aspirations that consumers and their families have communicated to the Board.

Stepping Up presents a course of action that must be taken if this vision is to become a reality. In summary:
• South Australia has to get back to knowing the people who use the services and recognising them in service development and delivery as individual people, each with their unique needs and life circumstances.
• This is a plan for all South Australians. It calls for a scalable and sustainable system for country South Australia. Development may look different on the ground in the country and not all services can be provided in country locations, but there should be equity of outcomes for all people.
• The plan also focuses on delivering improvements and better investment in services for older people, better integration of child and adolescent services and comparable outcomes for Aboriginal
