Children’s Health Queensland (CHQ) is working with young people, families, carers and Queensland Health staff across Queensland to name the new Adolescent Extended Treatment Centre (for young people with severe and complex mental health issues).
The aim is to identify a name that represents what the centre is intended to achieve in terms of health outcomes for young people – one of hope, dignity and recovery
So CHQ are seeking the help of eight young leaders across different consumer communities to help make sure the process is inclusive and reflects the diversity of young people across Queensland.
So, if you are aged 13-24 and represent one of more of the following characteristics:
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander;
- Culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
- Have accessibility or disability requirements; or
- Have lived experience of mental health services
and you’re available to attend meetings on
● 16 October 2019 (90 mins)
● 1 November 2019 (60 mins)
● 18 November 2019 (45 mins)
please submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) BY 13 OCTOBER and you could help provide the name that represents a better future for generations of young Queenslanders.
Those selected will be paid $187 per meeting and public transport, parking fees and private motor vehicle use will be reimbursed.
