20Queensland Health Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Mental Health Strategy 2016–2021VisionThe vision of this strategy is elimination of the gap in mental health outcomes between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders and non-Indigenous Queenslanders.The strategyPrinciplesThis strategy is underpinned by a commitment to the following principles:Culturally capable services: deliver clinical services in a way that respects the rights, views and expectations of individuals and their families, thereby embedding cultural perspectives into clinical practice. Person-centred care: Queensland Health mental health services for Indigenous Queenslanders are designed around the needs and expectations of individuals, families and communities rather than those of service providers.Community engagement:Indigenous communities participate in the design and delivery of health services provided by HHSs.Indigenous leadership: supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leadership in the planning, delivery and governance of mental health services for Indigenous Queenslanders.Partnerships: working with the full range of health service providers in partnership with Indigenous communities provides the best opportunity to improve mental health outcomes.Community control of primary healthcare services:the demonstrated effectiveness of A&TSICCHSs in providing comprehensive primary healthcare is recognised and supported.Value for money: funding is targeted to evidence-based interventions that will achieve sustainable health outcomes and contribute to closing the health gap.ScopeThe scope of this strategy includes:• a focus on acute and chronic mental health and/or substance use problems; noting that a separate whole of government action plan is being developed and implemented by the Queensland Mental Health Commission that will address the pre-determinants of social and emotional wellbeing problems• actions to improve the effectiveness and accessibility of specialist mental health and drug and alcohol treatment services provided by Queensland Health for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders• initiatives to strengthen integration between these Queensland Health services and primary healthcare services provided by non-government organisations• an emphasis on identification of risk and early intervention within primary healthcare services provided by Queensland Health.
