Mental Health

The Victorian Government is committed to improving access to clinical treatment and psychiatric disability support for people with a mental illness. Specialist state funded mental health services are aimed primarily at people with serious mental illness or mental disorder who have associated significant levels of disturbance and psychosocial disability due to their illness or disorder.
