The Queensland Mental Health Commission drives reform of the mental health and alcohol and other drugs systems in Queensland. Our job is focused on improving the mental health and wellbeing of all Queenslanders and preventing and reducing the impact of mental illness, problematic alcohol and other drug use and suicide.
We identify issues and priorities, research and advise on reform options, support others to implement change, and check our collective progress.
To achieve reform we work in partnership with others. This includes people with lived experience, their families, carers and supporters, as well as decision-makers, funders, advocates, frontline workers and service providers, in the government, non-government and private sectors.
