GriefLine congratulates Daniel Andrews’ Victorian Government on its emphatic victory in Saturday’s state election, and looks forward to working closely with the Government to ensure positive outcomes for Victorians experiencing loss and grief.
“The resounding election victory on Saturday shows that Victoria welcomes increased investments into vital community services such as mental health,” CEO Catherine Cini said.
“We congratulate the Government on its commitment to improve the mental health system by commissioning a Royal Commission, which will undoubtedly save lives,” she added.
Social commitments from Labor also included implementing all 227 recommendations of the Royal Commission into family violence.
“Many of the children we see in our specialised program are traumatised because of either witnessing or experiencing family violence. Similarly, loss and grief because of relationship breakdowns are one of the main issues we hear on the helpline,” Ms Cini said.
“We’re excited about working with the re-elected government on the detail and implementation of these policies.”
