Ivan Frkovic extends his time as Queensland’s Mental Health Commissioner for the next three years.
Mr Frkovic will continue to oversee development and implementation of the whole-of government strategic plan to improve the mental health and wellbeing of Queenslanders.
Queensland Government has committed a record-breaking $1.64 billion to continue expanding mental health support.
Looking to make a positive impact on mental health in your community? Do you have a great idea for a Queensland Mental Health Week event?
To assist communities in getting their ideas up and running there are one-off grants of up to $3000 now available through the Queensland Mental Health Week Community Events Grant Program.
More than $100,000 worth of grants are being made available to help organisations across the state host Queensland Mental Health Week events that raise awareness of mental health, bolster belonging, and create connections.
Queensland Mental Health Commissioner Ivan Frkovic has welcomed legislative amendments that allow police to divert more people found with small quantities of drugs for personal use to a health response, instead of the courts.
