QUEENSLAND MENTAL HEALTH COMMISSION CONSULTATION REPORT

In response to significant reform occurring across sectors, the Queensland Mental Health Commission is preparing to renew the "Queensland Mental Health, Drug and Alcohol Strategic Plan 2014-2019". The Commission has released a consultation report called "Your voice, one vision" which outlines the issues raised during consultations with stakeholders, including people with lived experience, their families, as well as policy, planning, service managers and frontline service providers from a wide-range of sectors. The findings from the "Your Voice, One Vision Consultation Report" will inform the Queensland Mental Health Commission's renewed strategic plan. Some of the future directions for reducing AOD related harm outlined in the report include:

  • A harm minimisation approach that addresses all drug types (legal and illegal
  • Improved community awareness to combat stigma and discrimination
  • Increased availability of AOD services
  • Increase support for families
  • Improved responses within the criminal justice system to reduce AOD related harm
  • New options for harm reduction initiatives
  • Enhancement of workforce development in the AOD sector
