Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Workforce

8 November 2022

Category: Projects

QAMH is in consultation with Queensland Health’s Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drugs Branch to develop a workforce strategy specific to the Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Sector. To kickstart the project and start a conversation around the strategies and actions required, QAMH released a draft Issues Paper at our Jobs and Skills Summit on 18 November. Centred around three pillars (Qualifications and Training, Attraction and Retention, and System Enablers), this paper sets out the workforce challenges facing the sector and puts forward possible solutions.

We are seeking written submissions from members on the content of the Issues Paper and aim to publish a final version in February 2023.
