Human Rights Week
This year’s Human Rights Week (Vic) is from 2 – 9 December 2022 and we are partnering with our affiliate organisations to put Human Rights in Action.
At the MHCC, we take a human rights-based approach and the principles of (the Act) and guide all our work. When people contact us, we help them understand and exercise their rights and advise of next steps using a rights-based, trauma-informed, recovery-oriented approach.
