The Victorian Government is establishing a Royal Commission into Mental Health.

The Royal Commission will provide recommendations on how to best support Victorians with mental illness.

Please have your say by participating in the consultation process for the Terms of Reference.

You can provide input in one of two ways: 
1) completing the online survey 
2) submitting a written submission (details on the website).

The terms of reference will detail the Royal Commission’s task, and it is critical that they include all the relevant issues.
