Focus Group: Towards a Crisis Care Framework
Office of the Chief Psychiatrist
As part of the Better Care Together plan, the Queensland Health Mental Health Alcohol and Other Drugs Branch is working toward a Crisis Care Framework to help guide the design and future investment in the crisis care system. The Framework will consider the types of services, workforces, practices and partnerships required for the future.
Crisis care providers and people with lived experience are invited to help shape, test and refine the Framework by participating in one of six in-person or virtual focus groups being held in late September and early October.
The focus groups will be independently facilitated by Mr Sean Lowry from Green Cup Consulting in Longreach, Cairns, Mackay and Brisbane with virtual options available based on demand. You can register your interest in joining the conversation here:
