Inquiry into Family Domestic and Sexual Violence

In November 2020, the Commission provided a submission to the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Social Policy and legal Affairs Inquiry into Family, Domestic and Sexual Violence.

This submission will outline an approach that encourages greater coordination and
partnership between the mental health and DFSV systems and sectors at the national level, in doing so taking a whole-of-government, whole-of-life, cross-sector approach.
