The Australian healthcare system is complex. Mental health services are delivered across a range of settings by a variety of providers. Mental health service providers are located in GP surgeries, community managed organisations, schools, aged care services, and private and public health settings. Funding comes from a combination of state, national, insurance and out of pocket sources.

Services provide support for people with mental health conditions in their efforts for recovery. They also assist families and carers, who provide significant informal supports for their loved ones.

A range of mental health-related services are provided in Australia by various levels of government. The Australian Government funds consultations with specialist medical practitioners, general practitioners (GPs), psychologists and other allied health practitioners through the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS), other primary mental health services through the Primary Health Networks and support for psychosocial disabilities through the National Disability Insurance Scheme. Access to psychiatrists, psychologists and other allied health professionals may, dependent on eligibility, be subsidised through initiatives such as Better Access initiative through the preparation of a Mental Health Treatment Plan by a GP. State and territory governments provide mental health services including through public hospitals, including emergency departments, residential mental health care and community mental health care services.
