ACT Children and Young Person Review

The ACT Government established the Office for Mental Health and Wellbeing (the Office) to oversee the coordination and integration of mental health services in the ACT. A priority area for the Office (identified in their Workplan) is a review of Children and Young People’ s Mental Health and Wellbeing across the continuum.


The Office has engaged MIEACT and is working with the Capital Health Network, to lead a community consultation that allows your voice to be heard directly by ACT Government. We want to hear your thoughts on the current state of mental health and wellbeing, including prevention, education and services for children and young people (0-25 years). The questionnaire will inform future co-design workshops and recommendations on how to improve the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people in the ACT.


The first phase of the project is Discovery and we have three questionnaires targeting different groups. You can complete the questionnaires online, you can also print out and return the surveys via email or post.


The second phase is consultation which includes a number of co-design workshops held in August. Anyone interested in the project is invited to attend.
