Join the Queensland Mental Health Commission and a panel of experts for a two-way conversation about reform of the Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) system in Queensland.

The Commission is working on a renewed Alcohol and Other Drugs Plan for Queensland, and has published 10 consultation papers written by leading AOD experts that focus on key areas of reform, including:

  • the impact of the pandemic on patterns of AOD use
  • stigma and discrimination
  • creating, sustaining and supporting the AOD workforce
  • prevention of alcohol and other drug use and harm
  • harm minimisation
  • reducing alcohol-related harm
  • integrated responses for vulnerable young people
  • social and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • social and cultural determinants of health
  • options for reform.

Chaired by Queensland Mental Health Commissioner Ivan Frkovic, this free online and in-person event will focus on key themes for reform and their implications for Queenslanders. More speakers will be announced soon.

Speaker presentations will be followed by a two-way conversation from our online and in-person audience. Audience members are also invited to complete our online survey about AOD reform priorities.
