(1) How many times has the Mental Health Strategic Oversight Group met since the introduction of the ACT Mental Health Services Plan 2009-2014.

(2) Will the Strategic Oversight Group provide advice on mental health budget submissions, including from community and non-government organisations, for the 2011-2012 budget; if so, what will be the process for providing this advice.

Ms Gallagher: I am advised that the answer to the member's question is as follows:

1. The Mental Health Strategic Oversight Group has met four times since the introduction of the ACT Mental Health Services Plan 2009 - 2014.

2. The Mental Health Strategic Oversight Group will not provide advice on individual mental health budget submissions, including from community and non-government organisations, for the 2011 - 2012 budget.
