We invite quarterly sponsorship applications up to $10,000 to support achievement of better mental health outcomes for Queenslanders.

Sponsorship enables the Commission to support community awareness events, enhance knowledge sharing and collaboration. We support a range of events, conferences and other activities after considering how each application meets the assessment criteria.

We are currently seeking to support events, conferences and activities that align with the Shifting minds priorities:

  • Personalising and integrating care
  • Removing barriers to social and economic participation
  • Strengthening mental health and wellbeing
  • Getting in early
  • Balancing our approach
  • Collective responsibility
  • Leadership.

Applications for financial sponsorship are assessed against assessment criteria four times a year, with rounds closing on 28 February, 31 May, 31 August and 30 November.

We assess sponsorship applications according to our sponsorship guideline and publish all approved sponsorships in our sponsorship register

The sponsorship program is consistent with Queensland Government sponsorship policy, and seeks to ensure that all sponsorship requests are considered using an open, transparent, fair and equitable process.

How to apply

We are currently implementing a new and improved sponsorship application system and provide new details for making applications as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience and look forward to receiving your application once the new system is in place.

Who can apply

Requests for sponsorship will only be accepted from incorporated bodies, including statutory authorities and companies.

Individuals, political or religious organisations or organisations who receive any form of funding from tobacco or alcohol companies, either directly or indirectly are not eligible for sponsorship funding.

  • events or activities that do not recognise diversity in communities, families or culture
  • sponsorship that includes funding to purchase capital works or assets
  • any event that is considered high risk or contravenes the Commission’s policies
