The Queensland Plan for Mental Health 2007-2017 has been informed by extensive consultations undertaken with mental health consumers, carers, service providers and key stakeholders. Five priority areas for action have been identified. These priorities position mental health services to be better able to respond to existing and future demand
for care, by building on the strengths of the current system, developing an appropriate mix and level of services and implementing new and innovative approaches to consumer and carer needs.

The priorities are:
• promotion, prevention and early intervention
• improving and integrating the care system
• participation in the community
• coordinating care
• workforce, information, quality and safety.
