Victoria's Mental Health Act 2014
Victoria's Mental Health Act 2014 is a key element to the government's mental health reform agenda, and places individuals and families at the centre of mental health treatment and care.
The Act involves significant changes to compulsory assessment and treatment of people living with mental illness. It will ensure that people living with mental illness and subject to compulsory treatment are supported to make or participate in decisions about their treatment and care.
The Act also recognises the important role of families and carers in supporting the recovery of people living with mental illness.
