Gold Coast Primary Health Network (GCPHN) is currently seeking expressions of interest for lived experience representatives to join the Child and Youth Mental Health Partnership Group.
The Child and Youth Mental Health Partnership Group (CYMH-PG) has been established as part of the implementation of the Joint Regional Plan for Child and Youth Mental Health services. The Group will provide a forum for strategic input, planning, communication, and direction for stakeholders currently working in Child and Youth Mental Health Services, specialising in helping children, youth, and young adults 12-25 years who have mental health needs. The Partnership Group provides the space for ongoing connection and strengthening of opportunities for cooperation between treatment providers, lived experience representatives, primary care providers and key stakeholders.
The formation of this group is in partnership with Gold Coast Health and is an important driver to continue the momentum for system improvement and collaboration across the sector that was built during the development of the Joint Regional Plan. The Joint Regional Plan was officially launched in June 2020 and can be found here: Joint Regional Plan for Mental Health, Suicide Prevention, Alcohol and Other Drug Services
The purpose of the CYMH-PG is to provide advice and leadership to support the implementation of the Child and Youth Mental Health strategies within the Joint Regional Plan, in addition to emerging priorities identified by the group. Members will use their specific knowledge and expertise to inform the best ways to facilitate implementation of prioritised strategies, with a focus on working towards achieving service integration across the region.
The Group will be expected to scope, develop, and implement activities that work towards:
