Victoria’s 10-year mental health plan: 2016 - 2025

This 10 year Mental Health Plan recognises that nearly half of all Victorians (45 per cent) will experience mental illness in their lifetime.  This plan focuses on greater efforts in prevention, and providing better integrated services and support for the most vulnerable people in the community. 

The plan also outlines the government’s approach to work directly with people with a mental illness, their families and carers to co-produce and improve services. It is a long term plan that sets the mental health agenda for the next decade, not a set of one-off actions.
