The Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System was announced on the 24th February 2019 and the community were asked to make submissions from the 18th April 2019.

The Royal Commission is an inquiry into the effectiveness of the mental health system in Victoria. It provides a unique opportunity to make improvements to mental health services including access to support, navigating services and models of care.

The Royal Commission also provides an opportunity for a wider community conversation about mental health – toward ending stigma and discrimination.

breakthru, our customers and carers, have contributed our own expertise and insights about what improvements can be made to improve outcomes for people who experience mental illness.

Once all submissions have been made by the community, and the Royal Commission has completed it’s inquiry, a final report with recommendations on how to improve mental health services will be delivered in October 2020.
