VMIAC Royal Commission Briefings

With the release of The Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System, VMIAC have prepared a number of briefings for our membership based on our readings and findings from the Royal Commissions final report. Each session will cover a particular theme/topic present within the report.

Meetings will be taking place every Thursday online from 4pm-5.30pm

Join us as we unpack the reports and discuss the report’s recommendations and their impact on consumers, VMIAC, and the future of Victoria’s mental health system.

These Briefings are now completed, thank you so much for everyone who took part.
