Advocacy

In December 2021 Queensland Parliament established the Mental Health Select Committee to conduct an inquiry into the opportunities to improve mental health outcomes for Queenslanders”. The committee invited Queenslanders and organisations to share their views and is now holding public briefings and hearings until March. The committee is then due to report back to the House byTuesday 31 May 2022. 

Arafmi and Carers Qld developed a joint submission for the Mental Health Select Committee highlighting the needs of Mental Health Carers and opportunities to make significant changes. (Insert link to submission) On 18th February we were invited to formally attend a hearing to provide further details directly to the committee. This was an excellent opportunity to highlight the real needs of mental health carers. On behalf of Arafmi we thank Dr Alexis Wallace form the Arafmi Carer Advisory Committee for joining us on the panel and strengthening the voice of the carers for the committee. Details about all the submission and hearings can be found Committee Details | Queensland Parliament
