Our Vision for Queensland

QAMH’s vision is laid out in Wellbeing First. It paints a future where the mental health system moves from managing illness to actively supporting mental wellbeing. It argues the Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Sector is best placed to support population-wide wellbeing, through programs that provide practical support early in a person’s mental distress.

Our Advocacy Leads a United Voice

With our members, QAMH leads a united contemporary voice, promoting a strong role for the Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Sector in Queensland.

Leads a United Voice

Our Network

We work closely with our members and stakeholders to build networks with funders, other elements of the mental health system and other related sectors to drive reform and improve access to quality mental health and wellbeing services for all Queenslanders.

2023-24 State Budget

Queensland invests just 4.7 per cent of its mental health funding in community managed mental health NGOs – the lowest of any state or territory in Australia. QAMH is calling for an increase of at least 48 per cent in funding for the Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Sector, as well as more transparency as to how decisions about mental health funding are made. The State Budget will be  released on Tuesday 13 June 2023.
