|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.
Residual expenditures by specialised mental health services that cannot be directly related to programs operated by a particular organisation or service unit (that is, can only be indirectly related to a particular organisation or service unit).
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.
Report service development expenditure only where the service development operates independently and where that expenditure is not reported elsewhere. Where the service development activity occurs as an integral component of service delivery (e.g. in cases where the service is already reporting activity data), the expenditure should be reported under the relevant service unit.
