Mental Health Commission - Website


Upon the amalgamation of the Drug and Alcohol Office (DA) and Mental Health Commission (MHC) a new corporate website is required to represent the new organisation. The website needed to reflect the organisation’s new look and feel, with content consistent with its brand attributes.


To develop an easily accessible and visually appealing website that provides relevant information to its stakeholders. We designed a new look and feel for the amalgamated Mental Health Commission organisation that portrays a professional and reputable government agency that is working to provide mental health services to people in Western Australia.

Idea and execution

This website was developed based on the principles of its use with a primary objective to easily access relevant information to its stakeholders. The objectives and scope of work were workshopped with all stakeholder groups to develop the functional specifications and design brief. The overall design and functionality of the site was based on a thorough user experience assessment and strategy.
