Thomas Embling Hospital: celebrating 20 years in the makingZoe Simmons
Twenty years ago, Thomas Embling Hospital officially opened its doors as Australia’s first purpose-built adult forensic mental health facility.
Its opening marked a new era for Victorian mental health care services, with one simple vision: to provide holistic mental health care for people living with a mental illness who are engaged in the criminal justice system.
To celebrate its 20th year, we’ve created a series of videos to highlight Forensicare’s rich history of helping consumers. We also explore Dr Thomas Embling, the man behind the name, and what his work meant for mental health reforms in Australia.
And today, we share with you the first video in our four-part series.
