A five-year review of the Mental Health Commission was a requirement when it was established in July 2012 under the Mental Health Commission Act (the Act).

The review was led by Dr David Chaplow, a former National Director of Mental Health and Chief Advisor, Ministry of Health, Wellington, New Zealand, reporting to the Minister for Mental Health.

The Review found that the Commission has met the functions under the Act and made 17 recommendations to improve the Commission’s capacity to better reflect and support the needs of all stakeholders, especially those with a lived experience of mental illness.​​​​​​​​
