My team at TACSI was engaged by Brisbane South PHN to help inform the re-commissioning of mental health services in their region. Our team used a rigorous co-deisgn methodology to arrive at a set of robust, evidence-based recommendations and designs.
Brisbane South PHN had identified several priority groups in their region to be 'falling through the gaps' in service provision. Our task was twofold:
Led by our co-design group, and through rigorous testing with community, we delivered:
We did this by engaging with people representing all stakeholder group involved in service delivery: consumers of services, community social workers, service providers, GPs/allied health professionals and the PHN team. Our role was to facilitate these people (as subject matter experts and lived experience experts) to design solutions that were relevant, practical, possible and necessary.
Currently 37% of children in the OOHC system are Aborginal, despite only making up 2% of the population. A core feature of this project includes building an Aboriginal co-design team of parents, young people and professionals with lived experience who will work alongside Marrin Weejali, TACSI, and MacKillop Family Services to develop, test and implement the model.
The expectation is that this model will be developed for Aboriginal people by Aboriginal people, and community gains new practice in program design to develop more effective solutions with autonomy in the future.
