The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (the Commission) has developed a consultation paper for National Safety and Quality Mental Health (NSQMH) Standards for Community Managed Organisations (CMOs).

The consultation paper is available to view here.

The Commission is requesting input from CMOs, consumers, carers, clinicians, service providers and other stakeholders working in this area to inform the most appropriate approach to develop the NSQMH Standards for CMOs.

This survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.

You do not need to answer every question. If there is a question that is not applicable to you or for which you do not have feedback, you can skip the question. 

Consultation closes on Wednesday 30 June 2021. 

The Commission is running a series of public forums and webinars between April and June 2021 to support the consultation process. You can register your interest for one of these sessions here
