Adolescent Extended Treatment Facility and Expanded Youth Mental Health Program

Closing date: midday Thursday 7 September 2017

The Department of Health is committed to ongoing engagement and participation of health consumers following the work done implementing the Government response to the Barrett Adolescent Centre Commission of Inquiry report. See the youth mental health website for further information:

As part of the 2017-18 State Budget,Government committed more than $68 million over four years for capital works to deliver a new statewide Adolescent Extended Treatment Facility (AETF) at The Prince Charles Hospital; two new Step Up Step Down Units (SUSDU) in north Brisbane and south Brisbane; and refurbishment for two new adolescent day program (DP) spaces at Logan and the Gold Coast.

To ensure progression of this next stage of work the Department of Health in collaboration with key Government agencies and health consumers is establishing governance and consultation processes that offer a range of opportunities for involvement: an overarching committee, a project oversight group, and a co-design consultation.
