Our Strategic framework 2016-2020 outlines our vision, objectives, strategies, performance indicators and risk management environment.
The outcomes we pursue are:
- Queenslanders living with mental health difficulties, mental illness or problematic alcohol and other drug use are better supported to live purposeful lives
- Mental health and wellbeing is a shared responsibility across all sections of government and community.
Our objectives are to achieve better outcomes for people living with mental health issues or substance misuse by:
- reaching consensus on and making progress towards achieving system wide reforms
- maximising the collective impact of lived experience and professional expertise.
The strategies we implement reflect the requirements of the Queensland Mental Health Commission Act 2013 and include:
We are required to develop a whole of government strategic plan in consultation with consumers, families, carers, government and non-government stakeholders. The Commission’s role is then to facilitate, support and report on implementation of the Queensland Mental Health, Drug and Alcohol Strategic Plan more>
Review, research and report
We undertake reviews and research and prepare reports to provide advice and inform decision-making, build the evidence-base, support innovation and identify good practice more>
Awareness and promotion
We have a key role in facilitating and promoting awareness, prevention and early intervention by supporting whole-of-government and whole-of-community action. Actions are linked to the State-wide strategic Plan’s Shared Commitments to Action more>
Engage and enable

Our key performance measures include:
