Here for Gladstone

In 2017, the Here for Gladstone Board identified the provision of mental health, alcohol and other drug support services was a priority for Gladstone.  A Mental Health and Other Drug Sub-Committee was formed by the Board and a project officer was appointed to tackle the issue. Stage 1 of the project was to undertake a gap analysis to better understand the availability, accessibility and level of support available to those seeking help.  It also aimed to better understand the demand for services and the challenges and barriers currently being experienced by people attempting to access support and help for their condition.

Stage 2 of the project is to develop a solution to overcome the barriers and challenges within the sector.

The gap analysis and findings from stage 1 of the project have been published and are available here.
