Current Campaigns

Services Connect

Services Connect is designed to connect people with the right support, address the whole range of a person’s or family’s needs, and help people build their capabilities to improve their lives.

This new way of working will make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable Victorians and their families. Over the next few years, Services Connect will transform our processes, upend the traditional welfare model and ultimately encourage independence for the people we assist.

Key elements of Services Connect include:

  • one assessment so that individuals and families only have to tell their story once
  • one key worker who works with people most in need
  • one plan focused on building people’s strengths and capabilities and helping them move towards greater independence
  • different levels of support to meet people’s needs as they change over time.

For more information on Services Connect visit the DHS website here.

 

Victoria's New Mental Health Bill 2014

The Victorian Government has introduced the Mental Health Bill 2014 (Bill) into Parliament.

A new Mental Health Act for Victoria is a key element to the government's mental health reform agenda, and places individuals and families at the centre of mental health treatment and care.

The Bill involves significant changes to compulsory assessment and treatment of people living with mental illness. It will ensure that people living with mental illness and subject to compulsory treatment are supported to make or participate in decisions about their treatment and care. The Bill also recognises the important role of families and carers in supporting the recovery of people living with mental illness.

Further information on the new Mental Health Act is available from
www.health.vic.gov.au/mentalhealth/mhactreform  


Further on the Victorian Coalition Government’s mental health priorities is available from:
