To introduce Acumen, members pooled their expertise to draft an article about the role of systems modelling in Australian mental health reform processes. The article provides an overview of current and previous mental health reform plans in Australia, identifies and describes different modelling approaches and the types of topics they are particularly well suited to addressing and discusses challenges and opportunities for planners and policymakers relating to the commissioning, development and use of model based tools.
That article has been peer-reviewed and is available from the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry at: https://doi.org/10.1177/00048674231172113.
An earlier version is also available as a preprint at: https://psyarxiv.com/uqsgy/
