Purro Birik - (Healthy Spirit)



5. Summary of Issues Raised in Consultation


Both the first and second round of consultations were characterised by the willingness of Koori health services and mental health services to commit to working together to improve the provision of mental health services to Koori communities. Despite some local examples of services working together effectively, it was recognised that much still needs to be done to increase the capacity of Koori health services to respond to the social, emotional and cultural needs of communities, and of mental health services to consistently provide an accessible, culturally appropriate, effective response to Koori people experiencing mental illness.


The issues raised through the consultations with Koori health services and public mental health services have been grouped into nine categories:


  • accessibility and responsiveness of mental health services;

  • quality and effectiveness of mental health services;

  • culturally appropriate service provision;

  • service development issues;

  • workforce development issues;

  • capability of services;

  • accountability;

  • community control issues;

  • coordination and planning.
