We want to understand your experience as a clinician or someone with a key interest in MHSPAOD services and provide an opportunity for you to contribute to the direction of mental health care in Western Queensland. The aim is that your experience and ideas will contribute to how the health and social care sectors can better support MHSPAOD health outcomes. A consumer questionnaire is also being run concurrently with this survey and capture these important insights, essential in providing high quality services.
The key findings will be used to refresh the Western Queensland Primary Health Network (WQPHN) MHSPAOD Regional Plan for Western Queensland for the next five years.
The Survey
This survey has been adapted for our Western Queensland rural and remote context from the Fifth National Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Plan (and Guide), the Queensland Mental Health Commission Shifting Minds Strategic Plan 2018-2023, the Queensland Alcohol & Other Drug Treatment & Harm Reduction Outcomes Framework (2019) and the Nukal Murra Social and Emotional Wellbeing Framework.

The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete and needs to be done in one session. You also have the option to write comments in free text boxes provided. The survey has been split into three domains of ready access to care, proactive preventative care and engaged chronic and complex care which reflect the Western Queensland Health Care Home model of care being implemented across the region.

The survey is completely confidential, and data will not be linked back to individual survey responses.

Your input is highly valued and will contribute towards understanding and improving mental healthcare, suicide prevention and alcohol and other treatment services in Western Queensland.  The resulting Regional Plan will be published at www.wqphn.com.au midway through 2020.

Thank you.

Chief Executive Officer, WQPHN
