The WA Government's establishment of the Mental Health Commission, the first in Australia, was aimed at creating a modern effective mental health system that has the individual and their recovery as its focus.

The Commission was established as a Government agency in March 2010 with responsibility for strategic policy, planning, purchasing and monitoring of these services. It will promote public awareness of mental wellbeing and will address stigma and discrimination affecting people with mental illness. It reports to the Minister for Mental Health.
