The various governance mechanisms supporting implementation of Planning for Wellbeing are depicted below.

The overarching governance mechanism is the Strategic Coordination Group, comprised of people with a lived experience, as well as senior representatives from the PHN, the HHS, Queensland Health, Queensland Network of Alcohol and other Drug Agencies, Queensland Alliance for Mental Health and the Institute for Urban Indigenous Health. This group provides oversight and guidance across the whole plan, including implementation, monitoring, review and evaluation.

A number of Partnership Advisory Groups (or equivalent), as well as key organisations, are providing focused guidance and oversight for their respective chapter.  In addition to people with lived experience, these groups are comprised of chapter-relevant stakeholders who can support implementation via their respective sectors, including representatives from community organisations, relevant Government agencies (eg Queensland Police Service, Queensland Ambulance Service, Queensland Health, Education Queensland) and peak bodies where relevant.  Membership details of the various groups are included with the information on each chapter

Underpinning and informing all implementation activity is the voice of lived experience. Relevant lived experience stakeholders are drawn from the broader Peer Participation in Mental Health Services (PPIMS) Network, and are supported to actively engage and contribute at each level of governance activity. The PPIMS Network itself is driving forward the first chapter of Planning for Wellbeing – people with a lived experience leading change.
