Performance indicator reports


Measuring outcomes and monitoring progress enables us to assess whether our collective efforts are making a positive difference and to identify those areas which require greater focus and effort.

It can also inform how we respond to those circumstances we cannot control which impact on mental health and wellbeing, such as drought and natural disasters.

Measuring outcomes

The 2014-2019 Strategic Plan included a commitment to developing indicators to measure progress towards achieving six long-term outcomes identified in that plan.

The reports focus on those measures which represent the mental health and wellbeing of all Queenslanders, including those living with mental illness, mental health problems and problematic alcohol and other drug use.

The performance indicator reports tell us, based on available data, how Queensland is performing against each outcome.

Achieving the outcomes can be challenging, particularly as they are influenced by a wide variety of factors.

2016 Performance indicators

The Performance Indicators Report 2016 (PDF, 808KB) is the second report outlining the indicators and progress made towards achieving the six long-term outcomes set by the 2014–2019 Strategic Plan.

The indicators report is supported by a Performance Indicators Summary 2016 (PDF, 183KB) which highlights the key measures.

2015 Performance indicators

The first Performance Indicators Report 2015 (PDF, 693KB) outlines the steps taken to identify and report on performance indicators related to the six long-term outcomes.

Next report

The next performance indicators report is scheduled for release in December 2017, along with a report on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander social and emotional wellbeing.
