The Bridging the Gap initiative(2004) and subsequent Strategic Plan: Tasmanian Mental Health Servics (2005-2010) represent a determined effort by the Tasmanian government to improve the quality of mental health services throughout the state. The report and plan recognise the need for extensive service development to lift Tasmanian services to at least a national average. This section will outline some of the history of Tasmanian services, and describe the current services in a time of substantial policy and service development. It will identify the reform strategy adopted by the Tasmanian government, particularly in the new service models proposed and the extension of the non-government sector, and consider a number of ongoing issues for development: those of workforce development, regionalisation, consumer and family carer issues, and partnership opportunities between government and nongovernment sectors.
