Report of the Inquiry into the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people in Western Australia – 5 May 2011

“The Commissioner for Children and Young People WA Michelle Scott has conducted an independent Inquiry into the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people in Western Australia.

The purpose of the Inquiry was to report on the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people and make recommendations that provide clear direction for action on how to strengthen mental health and wellbeing from pregnancy through to adulthood.

The Inquiry considered the whole spectrum of children and young people’s mental health needs, including promotion, prevention, early intervention and treatment services from the very earliest years of a child’s life.

The Inquiry made 54 recommendations to improve the mental health of children and young people in Western Australia, providing a road map of what needs to be done at the Commonwealth and State levels and in the government and non-government community-based sector. “
