Speak Up! Renewing the Queensland Mental Health, Drug and Alcohol Strategic Plan 2014—2019

The Queensland Mental Health Commission is renewing the Queensland Mental Health, Drug and Alcohol Strategic Plan 2014-2019 (Strategic Plan). The Strategic Plan provides a platform for the Queensland Government and community wide action to improve the mental health and wellbeing of all Queenslanders.

Good mental health and wellbeing is important as it supports people to have good relationships, stay physically healthy, learn and earn, and effectively participate in their community and society overall.

Many Queenslanders during their lives will experience the impact of mental illness, problematic alcohol and other drug use and suicide, whether directly, or as family member, carer, or support person.

To ensure that the Strategic Plan continues to meet the needs of all Queenslanders the Commission is seeking feedback on two discussion papers:

  • A renewed plan for Queensland: Reviewing the Queensland Mental Health, Drug and Alcohol Strategic Plan 2014-2019
  • Engaging people with a lived experience: Renewed priorities

The Commission wants to hear from you about what reforms and actions that you think will:

  • improve the mental health and wellbeing of all Queenslanders
  • prevent and reduce the impact of mental illness
  • prevent and reduce the adverse effects of problematic alcohol and other drug use
  • prevent and reduce the impact of suicide.

Feedback is encouraged from interested parties, including:

  • people with lived experience of mental illness, problematic alcohol and other drug use, and those affected by suicide
  • frontline services providers from a wide range of sectors including health, education, housing, child safety, justice and other social services
  • academics and researchers
  • local governments.
