• Mental Health Industry Connector Project

    The Mental Health Industry Connector pilot project aims to create a strong pipeline of well-prepared workers into our sector by assisting students of the TAFE Certificate IV in Mental Health (CHC43315) to successfully complete the course and graduate with an understanding of the Community and Mental Health and Wellbeing sector. QAMH Is funded to deliver this project by Jobs Queensland under the Queensland Care Consortium.

  • Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Workforce

    QAMH is in partnership with Queensland Health to develop a Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Workforce Strategy. The purpose of the Strategy is to articulate the distinctive workforce issues unique to the sector, as opposed to the mental health system more broadly, and detail the specific actions that will be required to address them. The Issues Paper was published in February 2023 and formed the basis of QAMH’s state-wide consultations with the sector. The Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Workforce Survey results were released in October 2023. The draft Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Workforce Strategy 2024-2029 and the draft Core Competency Framework were released mid-November 2023.
