|Royal Commission into Victoria's Mental Health System: interim report||14.14 MB|
The Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System was established because there is widespread acknowledgment that mental health services have reached crisis point. Many people living with mental illness are not receiving the treatment, care and support when and where it would offer the greatest benefit.
The Commission’s interim report includes priority recommendations that address immediate needs and lay foundations for a new approach to mental health. This is an important first step.
The Commission’s recommendations in its final report, due in October 2020, will present a bold and innovative approach to transform Victoria’s mental health system.
The Victorian government has committed to implementing all the recommendations made by the Royal Commission.
The Commission has recommended that a Mental Health Implementation Office be established to start delivering the recommendations.
