Consumer, Carer and Family Participation Framework

"The Consumer, Carer and Family Participation Framework provides a guide to adopting a consumer-driven, recovery-oriented, and carer and family inclusive mental health service model. The framework provides direction to Queensland mental health services across the state regarding enhancing consumer and carer participation at a local level. The framework has been divided into four components. The first three components (Part A - Background, consultation, principles and definitions; Part B – Implementation framework; and Part C – Self-assessment template) guide mental health services on how consumers, carers and families can be involved and participate in all levels of service planning, delivery and evaluation. The fourth component (Part D – Resources) is an overview of resources that services can use to enhance consumer, carer and family participation."
