Our Networks and Committees
At QAMH, we build strong networks with our 100 plus members and other sector stakeholders, to keep us connected with emerging community issues and to inform our policy work and advocacy campaigns.
Through our partnerships, we take action to drive reform and improved access to quality mental health and wellbeing services for all Queenslanders.
The Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Sector is strengthened through collaboration and connections. QAMH are involved in a range of committees and networks to drive both local and national change and reform.
Our National Network
At a national level we work with Community Mental Health Australia (CMHA), Mental Health Australia (MHA) and the National Mental Health Commission (NMHC) on a range of issues. The QAMH team are also involved in regularly meetings with the other peak bodies in each state and territory and have been instrumental in setting up a policy officer network and communication network to collaborate on relevant issues and opportunities.
Our Local Network
Locally we participate in a range of committees and working groups bringing the voice of the sector to the table. The QAMH CEO has regular meetings with the Mental Health Alcohol and Other Drugs Branch of Queensland Health and the Queensland Mental Health Commissioner. We have also engaged with members of state cabinet and will continue to do so around the important role of community mental health services and our vision for the sector as outlined in the Wellbeing First report.
