All mental health and alcohol and other drug workers across Victoria are encouraged to participate in a new workforce survey.
The survey provides valuable information to help the department better understand the workforce and is part of the Mental Health and Wellbeing Workforce Data Project recommended by the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System.
It is vital that we hear from workforces across a variety of disciplines and workplaces.
This includes workers in:
- public mental health services
- alcohol and other drug services
- private mental health services
- community managed mental health services
Thousands of workers participated in the survey in 2021. Their insights contributed to the development of Victoria’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Workforce Strategy 2021-24 and its implementation package which included $372 million of new investment.
This year, the mental health and wellbeing workforce survey is part of a broader health workforce survey. The survey will take approximately 20 minutes.
The 2022 program builds on the work commenced in 2021.
The data collected in the survey will provide information on the profile of Victoria’s mental health and alcohol and other drug workforces across specialties, settings, and locations. It will also provide insights into the experiences of individuals working in the system and how they can be best supported during the reform process.
Don’t miss this opportunity to have a say - and share your views and ideas.
The survey closes Sunday 16 October 2022.
