An Action Plan for Queensland

In 2014, Queensland committed to developing and implementing actions to improve mental health, and reduce the incidence, severity and impact of mental illness through the Queensland Mental Health, Drug and Alcohol Strategic Plan 2014-19.

Through a process of cross-sectoral consultation and collaboration the Commission has developed the whole-of-government, whole-of-community Queensland Mental Health Promotion, Prevention and Early Intervention Action Plan 2015-17.

The Action Plan contains new and continuing actions by 16 Queensland Government agencies.

Commission actions under the Action Plan include:

  • The Stronger Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Grants Program to increase community and individual connectedness, raise community awareness and build community capacity to improve mental health and wellbeing
  • Funding the Ed-LinQ Cross-sectoral Workforce Development Program to expand the capacity of education, mental health and primary health care workers in working with children and adolescents experiencing mental illness or distress for joint professional development
  • Funding beyondblue to support a range of community awareness, education and stigma reduction activities

The Commission is also developing a number of targeted action plans to respond to the specific needs and unique circumstances of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and people living in rural and remote communities.
