Victorian Primary Care Partnership

This submission was prepared to inform the Victorian Royal Commission into Mental Health about issues that relate to the prevention of and responses to mental illness. Its purpose is to highlight the systemic issues affecting mental health and how individuals and communities’ access, or fail to access, appropriate services, particularly those from marginalised, rural and regional communities. It is also intended to inform the commission of the work undertaken by Primary Care Partnerships in Victoria by presenting examples of place-based initiatives that are working well to improve outcomes for people living with, or at risk of, a mental health condition.
