Have your say on planning for wellbeing

Brisbane North PHN and Metro North Hospital and Health Service have sponsored the development of a plan to improve mental health, suicide prevention and alcohol and other drug treatment services in North Brisbane and Moreton Bay.

Stakeholders are invited to provide input on the draft five year plan, Planning for wellbeing, which sets out the challenges facing the sector and establishes future directions for the region as a whole, not just for the two sponsoring organisations. 

Brisbane North PHN Executive Manager, Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drugs Paul Martin said the plan had been developed in partnership with other healthcare providers and practitioners, people with a lived experience and carers. 

“People with a lived experience are leading the change and actions to strengthen their involvement at all levels of planning, delivery and evaluation start off the plan,” Mr Martin said. 

“The plan then outlines our shared objectives and priority actions to bring about whole of system and whole of community changes, including for carers and diversity groups, sustaining good mental health and how we commission and deliver services.” 

You are invited to tell us what you think about the draft plan. 

  • Do you agree with the change agenda set out in the plan? 
  • What are the most important actions to you? 
  • What have we missed? 
  • How can you or your organisation contribute to delivering the vision outlined in the plan?
