June 2017

Twelve Youth Mental Health Forums were held across the state, with representatives from Health Consumers Qld, Queensland Health and the Department of Education presenting on the Barrett Commission of Inquiry Implementation Project.  You can stay up to date with the outcomes from the forums at the Queensland Health website www.health.qld.gov.au/improvement/youthmentalhealth

The final Implementation Steering Committee meeting will be held on 19 July and further information on the next phase of this work will be made available as soon as possible. With the exciting announcement in the Queensland Budget of a $70M allocation to the new facility, 2 Step Up/
Step Down facilities and 2 Day Programs, there is still much work to be done.

Final reports on each aspect of the implementation will be made available also on the Queensland Health website.
