Abstract: Nathan Smyth talks about national strategies and directions, and what this means for you/your mental health service. Do you think that these strategies are simply words on paper?

The paper covers topics such as youth mental health, the national suicide prevention strategy, promotion, prevention and early intervention and the national survey of mental health and wellbeing.
