Sector Mapping Project

Start Date: April 2008
Completion Date: September 2010


This project was undertaken to gain a current picture of the mental health sector in NSW, as there has been significant change over the past few years. A literature search and NGO survey provided information about current strengths, gaps and opportunities for improvement in service delivery.


  • Identify the capacity and quality of the current NGO mental health sector, including NGOs funded by bodies other than NSW Health.
  • Provide recommendations for NSW Health about opportunities for developing the sector.

Final Report and outcomes

Who was involved:

  • Jenna Bateman, CEO (in consultation with the Board)
