Mental Health Royal Commission Resources

The Final Report of the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System recommends transformational reform. This will shape the future of our mental health system, and has the potential to improve the lives of all Victorians.

The ASU will continue to work with the State Government to ensure the promise of these ideas is fulfilled. ASU Members working in psychosocial support services should play a key role in ensuring that the “missing middle” identified in the report is addressed, and Victorians stop falling through the gaps.

For further information on what the Royal Commission has recommended, see the resources below.
