Submissions are now open

The Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System is now accepting submissions.

The terms of reference for the Commission ask us to consider some important themes relating to Victoria's mental health system. We would like to hear from you on the terms of reference.

There are two ways to make a submission to the Commission:

  • provide a formal submission by uploading or sending a written, audio or video submission (including any supporting documents) in response to 11 key questions relating to the Commission's terms of reference. You can choose to respond to some or all of the questions.
  • share brief comments in response to five key questions relating to the Commission's terms of reference. You can choose to respond to some or all of the questions.

Whether you are living with mental illness, caring for a loved one, working in the sector or just have a general interest in mental health – the Commission wants to hear your views and ideas for change.

If you want to attach any written, video or audio attachments, you will need to complete a formal submission.

This is the Commission’s first call for submissions. The Commission will also cover other important themes throughout its term, in line with the terms of reference.

 

To help us focus on the areas that matter most to the Victorian community, the Commission also encourages you to put forward any areas or ideas that you consider should be explored further at the end of your submission.

 

All brief comments and formal submissions will inform the Commission's reports.
