Youth Mental Health

The Queensland Government established a Commission of Inquiry (COI) into the closure of the Barrett Adolescent Centre (BAC) on 16 July 2015 under the Commissions of Inquiry Act 1950, appointing the Honourable Margaret Wilson QC, former judge of the Supreme Court and Mental Health Court in Queensland, as Commissioner. The Commissioner provided the BAC COI final report to the Premier on 24 June 2016.

The Government response to the BAC COI Report, publicly released on 18 July 2016, accepted all six recommendations in principle. In line with the Government’s public commitment, a detailed implementation plan was developed and then considered by Cabinet in September 2016.

The implementation of the Government response was completed 30 June 2017 and the final Implementation Steering Committee was held on 19 July 2017.

The next phase of work which will build on the collaborative partnerships established during the implementation of the Government response phase is commencing.
