FUND THE GAP. MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS!

What We’re Doing

As the NDIS rolls out, the Victorian State Government is removing funding to state mental health services.

This will have a dramatic and devastating impact on the mental health sector. Despite the continuous meetings with the Victorian Government where members have had an opportunity to detail the massive issues and shortfalls of the NDIS for the workforce, the State is yet to act.

1300 Jobs that will be lost in Victoria and services will disappear for 90,000 Victorians.

The ASU is calling on the Andrews’ Government to immediately re-fund state-based Community Mental Health services!

Help us save community mental health in Victoria.

We’re off the the Fair Work Commission tomorrow to stop Ballarat Council from standing down workers. These outdoor workers can continue to be usefully employed and the City of Ballarat is way out of line. We won’t put up with members being treated like this. It’s time the City of Ballarat was kind to its own workers and stopped the planned stand-downs. ... See MoreSee Less

Some good news amongst the hard stuff right now! A bunch of ASU members at Ermha, including Virginia & Julie below, have signed up for Coastrek – a team trekking challenge to raise funds to support mental health in Australia. All going well they will be walking a long way on Friday 22 May! As workers supporting people experiencing mental health conditions, they’re going an extra mile to support programs and services that make a difference in people’s lives.
