Youth Mental Health

A Youth Mental Health Program Oversight Committee established by Mental Health Alcohol and Other Drugs Branch (MHAODB), Clinical Excellence Division, Department of Health will oversee the Youth Mental Health Program developed as result of the successful implementation of the Government response to the Barrett Adolescent Centre (BAC) Commission of Inquiry (COI) Report.

The Youth Mental Health Program has two streams – capital and reform. The Framework for Youth Mental Health Reform identifies five key areas of work:

  1. Strengthening child and youth mental health policy and planning in Queensland
  2. Transitions – child and youth mental health services to adult mental health services
  3. Adolescent Extended Treatment Services Enhancement which includes the capital stream of work
  4. Evaluation, Research, clinical quality and safety
  5. Dual Disability (intellectual disability and mental illness).
