The Victorian Government and Carers Victoria are producing a Carer Statement which will outline what carers want from health and community services and what they think is important in the services that are available in Victoria.
Beyond Blue is providing a response to the consultation as we feel it is important that the needs of people who support a loved one with mental health issues are reflected in the Carers Statement.
We would like to hear from blueVoices members who have experience supporting a loved one with a mental health condition on the issues that are important to you so that we can ensure we are reflecting the areas that matter most to you in our response.
Who can take part
We're inviting any blueVoices members with experience supporting a loved one to share your views, no matter what state or territory you live in.
Beyond Blue responds to a range of submissions throughout the year to advocate to changes to the system to benefit carers across Australia.
We would like to get a sense of the different carer experiences across the country, to help us accurately reflect these experience in all of our submissions.
