What is the Part A PHN Lead Site Project evaluation?
Part A of the PHN Lead Site Project evaluation assesses changes to Australian Government-funded mental health care delivered in the primary care setting that aim to achieve a more efficient, integrated and sustainable mental health system and to improve mental health services for Australians. The evaluation is funded by the Australian Government and is being conducted by researchers at the University of Melbourne.
The changes to mental health service delivery involve a regional (local) approach, led by PHNs, to planning, integration and commissioning mental health services at a local level, in partnership with relevant services and with a new flexible primary mental health care funding pool. All 31 PHNs across Australia have been funded to commission primary mental health services in six mental health priority areas: low intensity services; psychological therapies for underserviced populations; child and youth services; services for adults with severe and complex mental illness; Indigenous mental health services; and suicide prevention.
Ten PHNs have been selected to act as mental health reform leaders in the PHN Mental Health Reform Lead Site Project (Lead Site Project). These PHNs (Lead Sites) will provide enhanced services in nominated key focus areas (e.g., by fast-tracking their activity in these service areas, establishing different partnerships and funding arrangements for services, and/or trialling approaches that are innovative in terms of types and modes of commissioned services). The key focus areas are:
• Regional planning and service integration;
• Stepped care;
• Low intensity services; and
• Services for youth with, or at risk of, severe mental illness.
The Part A evaluation aims to address the following questions in relation to the above key focus areas:
• What approaches were undertaken by Lead Sites to the planning, commissioning, management and delivery of services in each of the focus areas?
• What activities and approaches were found by the Lead Sites to be effective in achieving objectives in each of the focus areas?
• What were the barriers and facilitators to achieving objectives in each of the focus areas?
• What are the implications for future activity by PHNs and primary health care reform more generally?
