Let’s celebrate you –  Victoria’s mental health nurses
To celebrate the leadership, innovation, kindness and compassion provided by mental health nurses to all Victorians, across all areas of mental health, including direct care, management, research and administration, the Office of the Chief Mental Health Nurse has created an event calendar dedicated to giving back to you.
