Royal Commission

into Mental Health

MHLC welcomes the announcement that the government will hold a Royal Commission into Mental Health. We believe this is an opportunity to give voice to consumers, their support networks and organisations working across this complex sector.

This is an opportunity to redesign the systems and services in place for consumers.  We believe that it is essential that the Royal Commission firmly places the voices of consumers at the heart of proceedings.

MHLC has been working with Government to define the Terms of Reference.  Read our submission on the Key Themes and Focus Areas for the Royal Commission here.

The Federation of Community Legal Centres has also prepared a submission, which can be found here.

The terms of reference and the Commissioners will announced in February, with the Royal Commission due to commence in March.
