Activity 1 – Low Intensity Mental Health Services

Priority Area – Low intensity mental health services

  • Enhanced links to other services along the stepped care continuum to ensure people are matched to a service that meets their mental health needs. This includes providing tools to ensure accessibility where appropriate.
  • Mental health awareness and health literacy raising activities.

Expected Results/ Outcomes:
