Planning for Wellbeing Forum

Brisbane North PHN, together with Metro North Mental Health hosted the Planning for Wellbeing Forum on Thursday 3 December 2020 via Zoom.

The Planning for Wellbeing forum was the second of two half-day events held in 2020. The forum provided an opportunity for anyone with an interest in mental health, suicide prevention and alcohol and other drug treatment services in the Brisbane North and Moreton Bay regions to come together under the banner of Planning for Wellbeing – the Regional Plan for North Brisbane and Moreton Bay focusing on mental health, suicide prevention and alcohol and other drug treatment services. 

The forum brought together community members, people with lived experience and mental health, suicide prevention and alcohol and other drug stakeholders to share, reflect and celebrate the achievements of the sector since the launch of Planning for Wellbeing in 2018.The forum also included a segment on disaster management, giving attendees the opportunity to learn about some of the resources that are available to support mental health during disasters. Following speaker presentations, attendees were invited to attend an initial consultation opportunity, brainstorming some of the ways in which the mental health, suicide prevention and alcohol and other drug sectors should respond in the event of severe weather events or other disasters.
