Preliminary Model of Service –Adolescent Extended Treatment Facility

Youth Mental Health

On 18 July 2016, the Queensland Government released its response to the Barrett Adolescent Centre (BAC) Commission of Inquiry (COI). The COI Report made six recommendations which were all accepted in principle as part of the Government Response endorsed by the Government on 18 July, 2016.

In relation to Recommendation 4 the Government committed to develop a new state-wide extended treatment facility for young people with severe and complex mental health issues. This will be built at The Prince Charles Hospital campus in Brisbane.

To support planning and development of the new service the Department of Health and Health Consumers Queensland (HCQ) are consulting with a wide range of stakeholders on the preliminary model of service for the new facility.


Submissions on the preliminary Model of Service for the new, state-wide Adolescent Extended Treatment Facility have now closed.

Thank you to all those who have contributed to this process.

We have received comprehensive input from a broad range of sources which will be used to inform further development of the Model of Service.

A thematic analysis of the feedback received is now being undertaken and a summary report will be released on this site when it is completed.
