Help shape Queensland’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy

Health and Wellbeing Queensland is leading the development of Queensland’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy (the Strategy), in partnership with the Queensland Mental Health Commission.

The Strategy is being developed in response to a recommendation from Queensland Parliament’s Mental Health Select Committee’s inquiry into the opportunities to improve mental health outcomes for Queenslanders.

Good mental health and wellbeing is the foundation for thriving individuals, families and communities. The aim of this Strategy is to focus on what keeps us well and improve community mental health and wellbeing in Queensland. It will set principles that support, enhance, and promote good mental health and wellbeing and prevent mental ill-health where possible.

The Strategy will guide evidence-based promotion, prevention and early intervention initiatives that aim to support people of all ages. The intention is to align with and address the gaps in related government strategies and highlight the diverse needs and experiences of our communities, so that the mental health and wellbeing of all Queenslanders is protected and enhanced.

We want to hear from Queenslanders of all walks of life. Everyone’s perspective is important.

We want to know what keeps people well and how we can prevent the onset of mental ill health. Your feedback will inform the development of the Queensland Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
