Briefing to an incoming government: The First 100 Days

Nov, 2022

After extensive consultation with organisations and individuals in the sector, Mental Health Victoria is proud to be releasing The First 100 Days: Mental health sector briefing to an incoming Victorian Government.

The briefing, formed by information gathered over September and October 2022, provides guidance for actions to be taken in the first 100 days of the new government term which will best ensure the successful rollout of mental health and wellbeing reform.

The briefing responds to concerns in the sector about the strategy underpinning steps already taken toward reform. Key concerns are the unsustainable pressure mainstream services have faced this year, structural questions about workforce development, disruptions affecting the system, the continued and unaddressed vulnerability of smaller services, and the continued and unsustainable reliance on emergency services.

With help from across the sector, MHV outlines concrete, evidence-based and sector-supported steps that can be taken in the first 100 days post-election.

Recommendations are separated into seven sectors:

  • strategy
  • spending
  • support
  • sustainability
  • specialised services
  • sequencing
  • skills
