On 1 January 2015, the Victorian Government established the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) to integrate health and human services policies, programs and services to improve the wellbeing of all Victorians. The new DHHS brings together the former Department of Health, former Department of Human Services and Sport and Recreation Victoria. provides information about planning, policy development, funding and regulation of health services and activities that promote and protect Victoria’s health. This includes delivery of mental health and aged care services in Victoria.

This website will be updated shortly to reflect these changes.
