The Palaszczuk Government has today unveiled a plan to improve the mental health and wellbeing of Queenslanders by taking early action.
Minister for Health and Ambulance Services Cameron Dick also announced more than $450,000 in funding to improve mental health through greater social inclusion and community participation, particularly in regional areas.
Mr Dick said the Queensland Mental Health Promotion, Prevention and Early Intervention Action Plan 2015-17 was another milestone in mental health reform.
It comes after the Palaszczuk Government introduced Queensland’s Mental Health Bill 2015 and released a Suicide Prevention Action Plan last month.
“Maintaining positive mental health and wellbeing is important to all Queenslanders, wherever they are,” Mr Dick said.
