New Mental Health and Wellbeing Act 2022: Sector briefing

Victoria will have a new Mental Health and Wellbeing Act from 1 September 2023. The new Act replaces the Mental Health Act 2014. It has new rights-based principles that promote the values, preferences and views of Victorians with mental illness or psychological distress. The new principles guide how service providers should deliver assessment, treatment, care and support.

The new Act is a key recommendation of the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System.
