Standards and Quality Assurance

Targeted Community Care (Mental Health) Program services are delivered in accordance with the National Standards for Mental Health Services , available on the Department of Health and Ageing’s website.  The national standards apply to community mental health service.

The national standards focus on recovery and are based on values related to human rights and dignity.  They promote the empowerment of consumers of mental health services, their carers and families.  They emphasise practices which support continuous improvement in service quality.

The Program’s services are also delivered in accordance with all other relevant Commonwealth and state and territory legislation, regulations and standards.  Information about disability service standards and quality assurance is available on this website.
