Event description
Public forums on draft National Safety and Quality Digital Mental Health Standards

About this Event

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care is developing National Safety and Quality Digital Mental Health (NSQDMH) Standards in collaboration with consumers, carers, clinicians, service providers and technical experts to address key safety and quality risks for digital mental health service users.

The development of the NSQDMH Standards is a significant first step in providing safety and quality assurance for digital mental health service users, and best practice guidance for service providers and developers.

The Commission defines a digital mental health service as a mental health, suicide prevention, or alcohol and other drugs service that uses technology to facilitate engagement and the delivery of care.

The draft NSQDMH Standards are now available on the Commission’s website for public consultation:

To support the consultation process, the Commission is holding a series of location-based online forums and webinars in March-April 2020 locations. These forums will be facilitated by Dr Peggy Brown AO, Senior Clinical Advisor, and will give stakeholders a chance to discuss the draft NSQDMH Standards, provide feedback and ask questions of the project team.

The Commission invites consumers and carers, clinicians, service providers, and all stakeholders wishing to attend a forum or webinar to register their interest.

Stakeholders are welcome to attend any of the forums at a time that suits, regardless of their location. Attendees will be asked to join via videoconference or teleconference and will need access to a laptop or device with an internet connection.

The Commission recognises that the COVID-19 pandemic has put unprecedented demand on health services and healthcare workers, and has affected the lives of all Australians. We appreciate any support you can provide for this project under the current circumstances.
