Consultant Required to Research Stigma and Discrimination: Spotlight Call to Action
13 June 2017
The Queensland Mental Health Commission (QMHC) has issued an Expression of Interest (EOI) to engage a consultant to conduct research to identify the impact of stigma and discrimination related to problematic alcohol and other drug use on the mental health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, families and individuals.
The research is a commitment under the Action 6 in Proud and Strong: Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social and Emotional Wellbeing Action Plan 2016-2018.
The project will result in a report to the Commission that will be used to inform and develop activities to:
- reduce racism experienced by Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islanders
- improve access to support services and to support recovery for those who are experiencing problematic alcohol and other drug use
- improve social and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders.
Candidates will be required to provide a response addressing the criteria and lodge their EOI via the Queensland Government QTenders website. The EOI invitation closes on 20th July 2017.
