Steering Group Members
Closing date: Thursday 21 July 2022
Queensland Centre for Mental Health Research is looking for one consumer and one carer to join the Crisis Support Space (CSS) Evaluation Steering Group and to provide lived experience expertise and input more broadly to the CSS Evaluation.
The purpose of the CSS Evaluation Steering Group is to engage with the co-design and co-production of the evaluation and to provide further guidance to the research team as they undertake the evaluation. Members (including consumer and carer representatives) will use their expertise and experience within the space of mental health services in Queensland to inform, guide, reflect, and improve the evaluation’s design, methodology, data collection, and findings. The results of this evaluation seek to inform future design, delivery, and sustainability of the model for future investment and expansion.

Health Consumers Queensland has an opportunity for up to 15 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander consumers to attend a virtual roundtable to share your views about the actions to be delivered for the new Queensland First Nations Health Workforce Strategy for Action.
About the project
For the first time in Queensland, a united Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workforce strategy is being developed for Queensland’s health system. Building on existing state and national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workforce policies, the new Queensland First Nations Health Workforce Strategy for Action (‘Strategy for Action’) will be implemented across the health system, including the public health sector (Queensland Health) and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community-controlled health (A&TSICCHO) sector.
The new Strategy for Action is a Queensland Government election commitment and will deliver real actions to value, invest in, and grow current and future Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workforces.
The new strategy has been named a ‘Strategy for Action’ intentionally because it will detail practical actions to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workforces — the time for delivery is now.
