QAMH Members are invited to join us for our Online Members Forum. During this forum we will be joined by Queensland Network of Alcohol and Other Drugs Agencies (QNADA) CEO Rebecca Lang and Engagement and Sector Development Lead, Eddie Fewings to discuss their latest project, Building Domestic and Family Violence Capability in Mental Health Alcohol and Other Drug Services.

Health services including Community Mental Health and Wellbeing services are a key point at which victims-survivors and perpetrators of Domestic Family Violence engage with support: it is essential it is that they have access to services they trust and can safely to disclose to.

The Building Domestic and Family Violence Capability in Mental Health Alcohol and Other Drug Services project is seeking to increase the capability of Queensland Health funded MHAOD services to respond effectively to domestic and family violence and support enhanced cross-sectoral collaboration and coordination. Led by the Queensland Network of Alcohol and Other Drug Agencies (QNADA), this project will:

  • Establish a baseline assessment of capability through the development and trial of a Capability Assessment Tool
  • Use the results of the trial of the capability assessment tool to inform service improvement and workforce development strategies in collaboration with participating services
  • Enhance collaboration and coordination between Queensland Health Funded MHAOD services and specialist domestic and family violence services as part of a broader integrated service system response to domestic and family violence in Queensland.

Following successful completion of Phase 1 of this project in Cairns and Hinterland Gold Coast, this project is now moving into Phase 2 commencing July 2024 which will see the project expand to other regions in Queensland. Join our next QAMH Member Forum featuring Eddie and Rebecca from QNADA to learn about this important project and how you and your organisation can get involved.
