30 September 2021

Category: Submissions

QAMH provided a submission advocating strongly for a National Mental Health Workforce Strategy that takes a broader view of the skills required to build a contemporary workforce. In particular, we called for the Strategy to include a stronger focus on the not-for-profit community mental health and wellbeing workforce, including lived experience.

The QAMH submission on the National Mental Health Workforce also addressed the following:

  • Key challenges facing Australia’s mental health workforce
  • Priority areas including the recruitment and retention of staff
  • Improving the attractiveness of careers in mental health
  • Improving integration of care and supporting multidisciplinary approaches
  • Developing innovation service delivery models and workforce optimisation approaches
