Mental Health Care at-Scale

Amanda Wheeler
Professor Amanda Wheeler

What are the integration requirements, implementation strategies and economic costs to deliver mental health care at-scale?

Research program lead Professor Amanda Wheeler and Professor Kelsey Hegarty are co-leads for the co-designed Roadmap for Mental Health Research Translation. Postdoctoral research fellow Dr Justin Chapman is leading the development of an impact evaluation framework for the roadmap and National Centre initiatives. This program includes ongoing ecosystem mapping using Wicked Labs, and annual community activities such as a policy scan, an national lived-experience priorities survey, and prioritisation for the National Roadmap for Mental Health Research Translation.

A current mental health care at-scale research project is the Implementation Co-Evaluation with our partners Neami National. We are conducting this co-evaluation with an embedded lived-experience research model of the Head to Health sites and Urgent Mental Health Care Centre to determine implementation strategies and pathways for embedding these models within the mental health care ecosystem.

The ALIVE National Impact Evaluation has two major streams: 1) Evaluation of the Implementation of The ALIVE National Roadmap and 2) The Social Return on Investment of The ALIVE National. Click here to see how the two streams of The ALIVE National Impact Evaluation intersect with each other.

The ALIVE National Centre Pocket Map 2023 Edition

The Annual Lived-Experience Priorities Survey 2022 analysis has confirmed the priorities that needed to be updated and where consensus remained. This has informed the renewal of wording alongside the discussions at our Annual Symposium and review of progress for the Pocket Map 2023 Edition.


The ALIVE National Pocket Map 2022 Edition - A Guide to our Implementation Areas

Eighty-eight people with lived-experience of mental ill-health (including carers, family/kinship group members and people who identify as having both experiences) completed emotion mapping as part of the Centre’s experience co-design approach.


The ALIVE National Phase 1 Consensus Statement The Short Horizon 2023 Implementation Actions

Our Phase 1 Consensus Statement was co-designed with 115 people with lived-experience of mental ill-health and carer/family and kinship group members over 2022.  These actions will inform further translation goals and targets for our national roadmap.


This image describes the emotion mapping processes for establishment of consensus in how people feel about different priority areas.
