A JOINT INITIATIVE OF:
The Joint Regional Plan for Mental Health, Suicide Prevention, Alcohol and Other Drugs Services is the result of extensive consultation with a range of stakeholders and builds on a strong partnership between Gold Coast Primary Health Network (GCPHN) and Gold Coast Health.
The Joint Regional Plan, which was officially launched in July 2020, was informed by people with a lived experience, service providers, clinicians and community stakeholders and details a shared understanding of the issues our region faces, a shared vision for the future and a joint strategic roadmap for future service provision.
More details on the development of the plan can be found below.
GCPHN and Gold Coast Health are focused on ensuring the implementation of the Plan draws on the momentum and enthusiasm that was present during the development. The early years of the plan will focus on building the necessary foundations and partnerships: key governance arrangements; a focus on better communication between services and across the system; putting in place local arrangements for supporting and networking; and collecting the necessary data to demonstrate progress against the plan.
To provide leadership and guidance throughout the implementation of the plan, the Strategic Oversight Committee has been established.
The Strategic Oversight Committee meets bi-monthly and provides a platform for leaders 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.
To learn more about the governance groups and meeting outcomes from the planning phase, please view the Joint Regional Plan Development Process.
Members of the Strategic Oversight Committee will work towards the shared outcomes in the Joint Regional Plan through the following responsibilities:
