Have your say on the design of new Local Mental Health and Wellbeing Services
Victorians are invited to have their say about new local mental health and wellbeing services.
The development of new Local Adult and Older Adult Mental Health and Wellbeing Services is a key part of the Victorian Government’s mental health reform, following recommendations from the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System.
The services will focus on prevention and early intervention for adults who are experiencing mental illness or psychological distress as well as treatment for alcohol and drug addiction.
The Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System recommended 50 to 60 new Local Adult and Older Adult Mental Health and Wellbeing Services be established across Victoria by the end of 2026.
Victorians are invited to share their thoughts on local services and the design of the treatment, care and support through the Engage Victoria website by 20 September 2021.
