QAMH supports the renting reform commitment by the Department of Housing and Public Works. Suitable housing is an important factor in preventing mental ill-health and often a first step in promoting long-term recovery for people with mental illness.
The Reform deals with five main areas:
1. Renting with pets
2. Minor modifications to rental property
3. Domestic and Family Violence
4. Ending tenancies fairly
5. Minimum housing standards.
You can participate in the discussion by taking part in the short surveys on the Reform here: https://www.yoursayhpw.engagementhq.com/give-feedback-renting-in-qld
Alternatively, written submissions are due by 28 December 2019.
