Guide for use:

Excludes payments to non-government organisations for services that are to be reported separately. These are payments for accommodation services, advocacy services, community awareness services, counselling services, independent living skills support services, pre-vocational training services, psychosocial support services, recreational services, respite services, self-help support group services and other unspecified services payments.

Grants made to external agencies for the development of training-related resources materials or programs may also be reported under this category.

Collection methods:

Residual mental health expenditure is to be reported only at the level at which the expenditure occurred (state/territory, region or organisational), and should not be counted at more than one level. Expenditure should be reported for these categories, where applicable.

Where they do exist, expenditure on schools of nursing should be reported at the organisation level.
