Human Services Quality Standards
National Standard for Mental Health Services
The National Standards for Mental Health Services (the standards) were first introduced in 1996 to assist in the development and implementation of appropriate practices and guide continuous quality improvement in mental health services, which at that time were predominantly provided through state and territory funded specialist clinical mental health services. They were welcomed by the service sector and were very influential in how services responded to the needs and expectations of consumers and carers. selectabiity is currently going through the accreditation process to meet these standards.
