RC witness statements

The Commission has collected witness statements from consumers, families and carers and a range of other individuals who were due to give evidence at the hearings.

Witness statements collected in 2020 include ideas for a more contemporary and responsive mental health system based on a number of themes relevant to the Commission's Terms of Reference.

You can read a list of these themes here.

Please note that witness statements collected by the Royal Commission in 2020 largely present information in response to matters requested by the Royal Commission, except where the individual is sharing their lived experience.

Witness statements are being published progressively over the coming weeks.

They are published on this page, alphabetically by surname.
