Collection and usage attributes

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.

Reporting expenditure against this item is not intended to be based on costing of activities that retrospectively entailed a significant mental health promotion component. Instead it should be confined to financial allocations that were clearly targeted towards mental health promotion objectives.

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.

Do not count these costs if they have been included in the expenditure reported by service delivery organisations within the region.
