This second annual report card from the National Mental Health Commission on mental health and suicide prevention in Australia builds upon the first report card A contributing life: the 2012 national report card on mental health and suicide prevention.

The report is divided into the following chapters:

  • letters to the Prime Minister
  • reporting back and looking forward
  • thriving, not just surviving
  • maintaining connections with family, friends and culture
  • ensuring effective care, support and treatment
  • something meaningful to do
  • feeling safe, stable and secure
  • preventing suicide.

This report includes eight new recommendations which build upon the 10 existing recommendations from the 2012 report. These recommendations are aimed at achieving the best possible health and wellbeing for all Australians.
