We know that it must seem that you have been inundated with surveys lately, but this one is important.
The voice of psychosocial workers in the Victorian mental health system is often drowned out by that of the larger and better-funded clinical sector. Their voice must be heard.
Future mental health system – workforce survey
The Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System has launched a new online survey to get a better understanding of the frontline mental health workforce in Victoria and to hear their ideas for change directly.
The survey will be open to all frontline mental health workers, including lived experience workforces, who provide mental health treatment, care and support within mental health services in Victoria. Volunteers are also encouraged to participate.
The Royal Commission is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to share your experiences and ideas to help shape a future mental health system for Victoria.
The survey will take approximately 15-30 minutes to complete depending on your role. The survey can be completed in more than one sitting and your input into the survey will be confidential and de-identified.
The survey closes at 5pm on Monday 10 August 2020.
Please note, the Commission is working with a range of stakeholders to promote and distribute the survey, so you may receive this message from several different sources. The survey will help the Commission to plan and design the changes that are needed in the future mental health system.
The Royal Commission will deliver its final report in February 2021, which will provide a bold and innovative approach for transforming Victoria’s mental health system. To find out more, and to register for regular updates from the Commission, visit www.rcvmhs.vic.gov.au
