PANDA is an accredited mental health service

We are proud to be accredited for safety and quality in mental health services.

The safety and wellbeing of you, our community, staff and volunteers is paramount and we are thrilled to have been accredited to demonstrate how we are managing our challenges and implementing processes to ensure enhanced supports for our clients and participants is achieved.

In 2018, PANDA achieved accreditation against the National Standards for Mental Health Services, developed by the Australian Government Department of Health.

In 2021, we were reaccredited.

This accreditation assessed service delivery, policies, communication, consent, safety and privacy within the organisation.

We are also accredited under the Quality Improvement Council - Health and Community Service Standards. These standards looked at our commitment to good governance, systems and service delivery. They also looked at how PANDA values consumer and community engagement and diversity. 

Both accreditations last for 3 years.

“PANDA have exceptionally high standards to ensure the safety and quality of service delivered to our community. I’m very proud of the achievement of being accredited against the National Standard for Mental Health Services and Health, and Community Service Standards. ”

Julie Borninkhof, PANDA CEO
