Submission on Review of Victorian Mental Health Strategy

In May 2008, the Victorian Government Department of Human Services commenced a broad review of mental health services. People with mental illness in Victoria experience discrimination within society and the health care system which causes significant social disadvantage.   The review aims to shift focus from a response based on illness and acute intervention to one emphasising wellness, early intervention and recovery.  The consultation paper, Because mental health matters: a new focus for mental health and wellbeing in Victoria, invited submissions on areas such as prevention, early intervention and access.
