Dedicated to helping those who protect us
Approximately 32% of Victoria Police employees have experienced a diagnosed mental health condition and approximately 90% have experienced burnout from their work to some degree.
We also know that, when it comes to seeking help for mental health and wellbeing issues, 61% of employees prefer managing their problems themselves rather than seeking help from a health professional.
Because of this, Bluespace was created for current and former employees, and their family and friends, helping them to access information about mental health and wellbeing issues, and services that may be of further assistance.

Is for all Victoria Police members and retired veterans to receive safe and secure treatment for PTSD and mental health related issues.
Awareness is critical and our aim is to promote an environment where members are able to freely discuss and receive personal treatment for their recovery needs.
We believe that having a safe and secure ward for the immediate treatment and management of members health is crucial to reducing the stigma of seeking assistance while promoting recovery.
By working together, we hope this campaign can help members attain the help needed to reduce the impact of traumatic incidents experienced in daily policing.
