CES and YES surveys
Our services are implementing the YES and the CES under the 5th National Mental health and suicide prevention plan.
Your Experience Survey (YES)
The YES survey is designed to collect information from consumers about their experiences of care.
By helping to identify specific areas where quality improvements can be made, the YES can support collaboration between mental health services and consumers to build better services.
Carer Experience Survey (CES)
The MH CES is about understanding the carer experience.
