Productivity Commission into Mental Health – July 2020 update
ADHD Australia made a submission to the Productivity Commission back in April 2019. In our submission we provided information about ADHD and the measures which can be undertaken to improve individual outcomes in education, workplaces and life, to increase productivity and reduce the economic burden ADHD has within Australia.
On 30th June 2020 the Productivity Commission completed its final report on Mental Health and sent it to the Australian Government for its consideration.
The release of the final report by the Government is the next step in the process. Under the Productivity Commission Act 1998, the Government is required to table the report in each House of the Parliament within 25 sitting days of receipt.
ADHD Australia, like many other organisations, and the wider ADHD community, eagerly await the outcome from the Government.
When the Government releases the report, the report will be available for free download from the Commission’s website and printed copies will also be available for purchase from the Commission’s publications agent.
