The Office of the Chief Psychiatrist is pleased to share the Mental Health Carers Experience Survey (CES) Report for 2021. The CES is a nationally endorsed questionnaire, and this first report establishes a benchmark against which improvements can be measured.
The Statewide CES report is the culmination of months of work under the leadership of the OCP in partnership with Carer Champions from each Local Health Network and the active involvement of staff at local mental health services across South Australia.
We acknowledge the contribution of the mental health carers who gave their honest and open feedback about their experiences.
Action Plans have been developed based on CES outcomes to help services to improve carers’ experience.
Carer feedback is a great opportunity for quality improvement
