Better job opportunities. Better services. Better experience.

The Victorian Government is making the mental health system better for all Victorians. This means investing more in the people, programs and services that deliver it. Across the state, we’re building state of the art facilities, creating new support services and boosting the workforce. 

Our current mental health workforce is made up of diverse, skilled and passionate people. But to build the new system that Victorians deserve we need a more substantial and robust workforce to support it. 

Jobs are available now across a range of disciplines, roles and levels. Our system needs more nurses and psychiatrists, allied health and lived experience workers. There’s no better time to bring your skills and experience to these exciting new career opportunities and become part of this growing multi-disciplinary team. 

Better mental health for Victoria means better opportunities for you.
