Mental Health and Wellbeing Act 2022

From 1 September 2023, Victoria will have a new Mental Health and Wellbeing Act. The new Act will replace the Mental Health Act 2014. The new Act is a key recommendation of the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System.

The Department of Health is in the process of developing information and training about the new Act, including eLearning modules, to support those in the mental health workforce. The introduction of training modules will be phased over time and will include topics such as the new rights-based principles, protection of consumer and carer rights, and the role of key oversight bodies.
