Our Members are Important to Us
The Queensland Alliance for Mental Health (QAMH) is the peak body for the Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Sector in Queensland.
We represent more than 100 organisations and individual members delivering community mental health and wellbeing services across the state. QAMH works for our members so they can provide better mental health support for all Queenslanders.
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.
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.
