    The ESP project for mental health and wellbeing care brought together data from 21 health centres participating in the ABCD National Research Partnership. The health centres include community-controlled and government managed health services in different Australian jurisdictions. Teams in these health centres conducted audits of mental health care for well adults (>975 client records), and completed 29 system assessments in mental health care, over the period 2009 – 2014.


    Over the course of the project (2015 - 2016), about 50 people in diverse health roles and organisations helped to interpret the data to:
     Identify gaps in recommended mental health care that are common across health centres
     Share knowledge on ways to improve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mental health care.
