A Matthew Guy Liberals and Nationals Government will fix Victoria’s worsening mental health crisis by launching Australia’s largest ever support worker recruitment drive to rebuild the state’s mental health workforce.
Just one of the many consequences of Labor’s record-breaking 263 days of lockdowns is a mental health crisis in Victoria.
A Matthew Guy Liberals and Nationals Government will fix this mental health crisis.
Within our first 100 days, we will launch the nation’s largest ever recruitment drive to revive Victoria’s fatigued and under-resourced mental health workforce.
Additionally, we will make the changes necessary to recognise qualified counsellors as mental health practitioners in Victorian schools.
After two years of interrupted learning we believe all students deserve support to get their mental health back on track – no matter where they live.
Our Plan to fix the mental health crisis also includes:
Repeated lockdowns have dealt a devastating blow to the mental health of every Victorian.
Only a Matthew Guy Liberals and Nationals Government can guarantee no more lockdowns. No ifs. No buts.

“The mental health workforce is under intense pressure and in desperate need of more resources.”
