The following best describe the two key strategic goals of service and support on which this National Mental Health Strategy is based:

 To develop, introduce, and monitor a broad range of mental health initiatives to support individuals and families across the range of preventive interventions, primary and secondary service provision, referral and rehabilitation, with special focus on immediate delivery of the most essential services to those with the greatest needs
 To introduce or strengthen legislation, regulation, organizational, and operational activities to support the delivery of interventions and services within the public and private health sectors plus related interventions within other sectors.
