Gold Coast Primary Health Network (GCPHN) is currently seeking expressions of interest for a lived experience representative to join the Joint Regional Plan Strategic Oversight Committee (JRP-SOC).
Building on a strong history of collaboration, during 2019 and 2020 GCPHN and GCH worked in partnership to bring together people with lived experience, service providers and community stakeholders to develop a Joint Regional Plan for Mental Health, Suicide Prevention, Alcohol and Other Drug Services in the Gold Coast region (the Joint Regional Plan).
GCPHN and GCH have continued to engage with stakeholders and progress a range of activities against the strategic roadmaps outlined in the Joint Regional Plan, to which, over the last 12 months has transitioned to the implementation phase.
The purpose of the Joint Regional Plan Strategic Oversight Committee (the Committee) is to provide leadership and oversight to the implementation of the Joint Regional Plan.
The Committee provides a platform for leaders, service providers and people with lived experience and cultural knowledge to come together as partners, using their specific knowledge and expertise to inform the best ways to achieve the shared outcomes identified in the Joint Regional Plan.
It is acknowledged that the implementation of the Joint Regional Plan is being led by GCPHN and GCH, within the context of their commitment as part of Fifth National Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Plan and Queensland Health’s Connecting care to recovery 2016-2021. However, the longer-term outcomes identified in this plan will require commitment from a number of organisations and agencies.
Please outline prior capacity training (e.g. roses in the ocean) and/or demonstrated experience participating in committee or community group environments.
