Day to Day Living Capacity Building Project (D2DL)

The D2DL Capacity Building Project is a federally funded project through the Department of Health that connects D2DL services across the nation. Undertaken by CMHA but auspiced to QAMH, the project has been operating since 2010.

The national project facilitates the identification and dissemination of good practice among D2DL Program providers. The aim of the project is to improve outcomes for people who experience mental illness by focusing on increased collaboration and connection among community mental health organisations that deliver the D2DL Program. Australia-wide D2DL services are connected through annual national face-to-face forums, web-based platforms, newsletters and service exchanges.

Service providers are supported by resources provided by the Project, including webinars, blogs and discussion rooms. D2DL is a structured activity program for people living with mental illness, funded by the Department of Health. There are 64 funded D2DL sites across the country.
