QUEENSLAND MENTAL HEALTH DRUG AND ALCOHOL STRATEGIC PLAN LAUNCHED

The Queensland Mental Health Commission (QMHC) has launched the Queensland Mental Health, Drug and Alcohol Strategic Plan 2014 - 2019. The plan is the result of extensive consultation with a broad range of stakeholders including people with personal experience as well as their families and professionals who work with people experiencing mental health or alcohol and other drug problems. The plan is based on four pillars: better services, better awareness, prevention and early intervention, better engagement and collaboration, better transparency and accountability.  Associated with the plan is the "Stronger Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Grants Program", offering a total of $500 000 across three initiatives: Community Wellbeing and Enhancement Initiative, Community Awareness Initiative, and Capacity Building for Community Wellbeing.
