New Statewide Trauma Service Seeking Providers

The State Government has opened submissions for providers to run the new Statewide Trauma Service (STS), which was a key recommendation of the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health system.

The STS will bring together mental health practitioners, trauma experts, peer workers and people with lived experience with the immediate priorities of:

  • developing a research agenda to address knowledge gaps in trauma practice
  • embedding trauma informed practice across the wider mental health and wellbeing system
  • creating a workforce strategy for new specialist trauma practitioners, who will provide tailored and holistic treatment, care, and support.

Applicants will need to apply in the form of a consortium partnership with the appropriate range of experiences and competencies to ensure genuine, collaborative partnerships with a diversity of stakeholders.
