Seventeen mental health services across Victoria will receive $9.3m in capital grants to improve the safety for Victorians receiving treatment and care for mental illness. The package will deliver 35 improvement projects with a focus on improving sexual safety across 25 adult acute inpatient facilities that collectively operate 829 mental health beds.
The upgrades will ensure that all bedroom doors have patient-controlled locks, making improvements to the security of women’s only areas, increasing the number of nurse call systems, improved privacy and the planning of dedicated family lounge areas where possible.
