The Mental Health Alcohol and Other Drugs Branch of Queensland Health are holding a workshop to identify practical examples or indicators of quality mental health services as delivered by non-government organisations on Friday 23 March.
[Note: this does not focus specifically on youth related services so anyone with experience with any NGO providing mental health services will have useful insights.]
The MHAODB are seeking (10) consumers or carers (each of whom will be remunerated $40 per hour as per the Department’s Renumeration Policy) who have had experiences with NGOs to attend the workshop:
at 111 George Street, Brisbane
between 10am and 1pm (lunch will be provided)
on 23 March 2018
To ensure regional representation, the Department is able to support two consumers from a regional area with flights and other travel.
Areas of particular interest are consumer and carer experiences in relation to:
- Recovery orientated practice
- Individualised recovery plans
- Consumer and carer involvement
- Client safety and risk management
- Least restrictive practices
- Inclusion and managing diversity
- Human Resources and workforce (training)
- Connections and referral pathways
So Expressions of Interest from participants who can contribute to discussions on these areas and represent diverse perspectives and backgrounds including culturally and linguistically diverse, LGBTIQ, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and regional Queensland will be welcomed.
