In Victoria the promotion of mental health and wellbeing is a priority. The Victorian public health and wellbeing plan 2015-2019 identifies strategic directions in improving mental health in Victoria. 

The Department of Health & Human Services 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.
