This is one of our favourite images of 2021 showing HCQs Youth Reference Group celebrating the launch of HCQs Youth Engagement Framework with Queensland Health Director-General, Dr John Wakefield, at our very first Youth Health Forum in May.

Its the perfect picture to accompany our latest eNews which celebrates everything consumers and carers, health staff and our team have achieved in partnership during the past three months. 

As Lachlan, one of the young consumers of the Reference Group reminded us, Many of us...have an unspoken bond and common experience. It’s that passion that motivates us to stay involved and help create something better. 

Enjoy reading and thank you so much for all you do to help make our health system the best it can be. https://tinyurl.com/HCQ-eNews-July-2021
