Metro North Hospital and Health Service (HHS) Mental Health has developed a draft Metro North Mental Health Clinical Services Plan 2018-2023.  We recognise the diverse health needs of the catchment populations cared for by our mental health and alcohol and other drug services, and the need to deliver different models of care that are tailored to individual needs. With a focus on health and recovery rather than illness, this Plan includes actions to improve the care for all people (adults and children) who access services in Metro North HHS who are experiencing

symptoms of:

• severe and complex mental illness

• substance use disorders

• suicidal ideation

• dual diagnosis i.e. substance use disorders and mental illness; and/or

• physical health conditions together with mental illness and/or substance use disorders

Informed by targeted consultation with consumers/clients and Metro North HHS staff, as well as a comprehensive assessment of health need, service activity and  literature, the Draft Plan will guide mental health services and alcohol and other drug services (provided by Metro North HHS) over the next five years with a ten year outlook.

The Draft Plan also demonstrates Metro North HHSs commitment to delivering care in line with National, State and local policies including the soon to be released ‘Planning for Wellbeing: A draft regional plan for North Brisbane and Moreton Bay focusing on mental health, suicide prevention and alcohol and other drug treatment services’.

We encourage you to download and review the online draft plan and use the survey to submit your feedback. The plan is available at the following link (please copy and paste into a Mozilla Firefox browser):
