Consultation on the Mental Health and Wellbeing Act for consumers in western suburbs, Gippsland

We have been working on a project to develop resources for consumers to explain your rights under the Mental Health and Wellbeing Act (MHWA), the laws that govern Victoria’s mental health system.

This initiative will increase awareness about the new mental health act, find out what you need to know about the new mental health act, find out how VMIAC can support you to understand the new mental health act – including any changes, promote consultation, co-design resources, and promote co-designed resources.

We are holding consultations this month at Morwell and Sunshine for mental health consumers. This will be a small group discussion to hear about the issues in your area, and what information you want to know about your rights as mental health consumers.

Your questions and contributions will be used by VMIAC to help make resources—such as videos and factsheets—for consumers about their rights.
