People with a mental illness require a safe, protective and healing environment to aid their recovery and long-term wellbeing.

Victoria provides mental health services with a wide range of clinical guidelines and legislative safeguards to protect people in their care, empower their staff, and improve their workplace practices in line with industry-leading standards.

These guidelines can help service managers and senior clinicians to develop their own policies, design relevant staff training, and build mutually beneficial relationships with other service providers and community organisations.
