Mental health investment and early intervention

Victoria has the lowest per capita expenditure on mental health in Australia and two out of every three young people in Victoria seeking mental health services are turned away. We will advocate for investment in early intervention and support services.

— Additional mental health funding of $543 million by 2022, to deliver the timely care that Victorians deserve –  benefiting individuals and saving $1.1 billion a year

— Solutions to dangerous wait times for mental health referrals to psychiatrists and other specialists

— Increased training for health professionals to identify and support people with early onset mental health conditions

— Expand combined mental health and drug treatment services in the Northern Metropolitan Region

— A new focus on trauma informed practice
