Department of Health

Prevention and promotion

In Victoria the promotion of mental health and wellbeing is a priority. The Victorian public health and wellbeing plan 2019-2023 identifies what we want to achieve in improving mental wellbeing in Victoria.

The department provides and supports a wide range of programs that promote mental health in collaboration with local councils, health providers, schools, youth and disability organisations, and community groups. The department also supports a range of prevention and early intervention initiatives to identify groups and individuals whose mental health may be vulnerable, and to design appropriate interventions to help them improve their social and emotional wellbeing.
