Abstract

Lisa Corscadden explored disparities in experiences of access to care for Australians with mental health conditions. Compelling evidence shows they have poorer experiences across care sectors. Disparities were larger in Australia than internationally, with minimal differences for measures related to policy guidelines. Disparities are amenable to improvement, monitoring can help.
