Forums and Events

VICSERV holds a number of Member Forums and other events throughout the year.

These events provide excellent opportunities to be kept up to date on key issues affecting the mental health sector at the local, state and federal levels.

Some of the events that VICSERV organises are member only, meaning that they are only open to employees of our member organisations. These kinds of events and forums provide the opportunity for candid discussion on current and emerging policy issues.
