In 2015, the Queensland Mental Health Commission engaged the Stretch2Engage Partnership to develop best practice engagement principles for engaging people using services in Queensland’s mental health, alcohol and other drug sectors.
These principles are embedded in the Stretch2Engage Engagement Framework for the Mental Health and Alcohol and Other Drugs Services and were developed after extensive consultation across Queensland, including a series of think tanks and online forums, during the first stage of this project.
The Partnership is now undertaking the next part of this innovative project, which involves piloting the Framework across the mental health and alcohol and other drugs sectors.
We’ve locked in design labs to engage organisations that are committed to implementing these principles across their operations. We’ll also be holding future events to engage expert thinkers and thought leaders.
The next phase of the project, which commenced in July 2018, pilots the implementation of the framework with a small number of services. Keep an eye on our website to read about project updates and the achievement of milestones.
