Accountability is a priority for the Mental Health and Wellbeing Division and guides our approach to reporting, monitoring and evaluation.

Accountability is a priority for our work and guides our approach to reporting, monitoring, and evaluation.  

We measure progress using outcomes. Our approach focuses on measuring what matters. It means data and information collected will focus on consumers, carers and their families. We review both the implementation and outcomes of the recommendations. This is to make sure we understand what works, what doesn't, who for, and why. We also commit to sharing the evidence generated and our insights. 

Our reform outcomes provide statements about what success should look like. They signal the ambition underpinning the reforms. They are what we expect for Victorians - and what they should expect for themselves. The outcomes we are working towards through the implementation of the recommendations are to be developed through collaboration with all stakeholders, particularly with people with lived experience.  

For some, the scale of change and pathway to achieving success will be very different. We work with communities and stakeholders on a shared vision of the future. Working together ensures commitment and success in achieving outcomes. 

Measuring outcomes will play a big part in our evaluations. Evaluation is a critical part to reporting on what works - and what doesn't work. We will use evaluation findings to inform ongoing program refinement and new program design and delivery.
