Submission to the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System

July 18, 2019

PCLC has welcomed the opportunity to contribute to the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health system. We have made recommendations with the aim to improve the provision of legal assistance to the most disadvantaged and vulnerable client’s in our community. These recommendations are informed by our extensive work with those experiencing psychosocial disability.

With over 50% of our family law clients experiencing family violence, we have seen the detrimental impact that exposure to family violence can have on our client’s mental well- being.

We are hoping our submission will contribute to the Commission’s aim to improve Victoria’s mental health system and enable Victorians to have the best outcomes in relation to mental health care.
