VICSERV is a membership-based organisation and the peak body representing community managed mental health services in Victoria.
A society where everyone has access to high quality mental health treatment, rehabilitation and disability support when they need it.
We support community mental health service providers in Victoria by building their capacity to ensure respect, opportunity and recovery for people affected by mental illness.
