Transport of people with a mental illness

People with a mental illness should have transport choices that are appropriate to their circumstances and are the least restrictive options possible.

Victorian mental health services should work collaboratively with the person, other services, practitioners, families and carers to support people to make and participate in decisions about their transport.

The Protocol for the transport of people with mental illness provides advice for mental health services as well as people with a mental illness and their families about transport and transport options.
