drummond street/queerspace submission to the Victorian Government’s Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System.

Below are some of the key recommendations:

  • bind and guide future investment in mental health prevention, early intervention, crisis and recovery services over the immediate and longer terms
  • ensure non-partisan approaches to mental health public policy, funding and service delivery
  • provide the framework and mechanisms to reorient funding intentions, including programming and initiatives across a spectrum of interventions which apply community-based family and children models alongside clinical interventions
  • ensure allocation of new monies to validated, innovative and outcomes-based models, including those responses which support children, young people, families, adults and carers early.
