We have included prompts throughout this document to encourage discussion about such issues as workforce capability and the needs of the enrolled population, as well as provide some options for action. In particular, we hope that these prompts will encourage you to consider your current actions and plans from the perspective of the user. The worksheet in chapter 12 summarises these prompts to help with formulating a mental health plan. We anticipate that the primary outcome of this process will be a plan that sets out those primary mental health services that a PHO will provide to its enrolled population – both in the short and long term. Some initiatives will be able to be undertaken within current resources, others will require the reallocation of existing resources and some services will require additional resources. Prompts Who will you consult with in the development of your mental health action plan? How will you keep the plan ‘alive’ to ensure that services are developed and improved over time? How will you incorporate evaluation and develop continuous quality improvement to measure the effectiveness of your service delivery?

How could some of these barriers be overcome? Promotion and prevention What role does your PHO have in mental health promotion?

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
