There are three NSQDMH Standards – click below to see what criteria and actions are involved in achieving each Standard.
National Safety and Quality Digital Mental Health Standards
The National Safety and Quality Digital Mental Health (NSQDMH) Standards aim to improve the quality of digital mental health service provision, and to protect service users and their support people from harm.
Digital Mental Health Standards
The three NSQDMH Standards include 59 actions related to clinical and technical aspects of digital mental health services. They describe the level of care and the safeguards that a digital mental health service should provide.
Implementing the NSQDMH Standards is voluntary for digital mental health service providers. Providers include non-government, public or private organisations, or individuals who make a digital mental health service available for others to use.
The Commission maintains a register of Australian digital mental health services that have been accredited to the NSQDMH Standards.
