Queensland Urban Indigenous Mental Health Survey (QUIMHS)

  • Description
    In May 2018, Queensland Health commissioned the Queensland Centre for Mental Health Research (QCMHR) to conduct an Urban Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Mental Health and Substance Use Service Utilisation Survey in Queensland.
    The Survey results are intended to highlight the proportion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in treatment for a mental or substance use disorder, the type and quality of service being accessed, barriers to access, and implications for service reform. The Survey responds to Queensland Health’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Mental Health Strategy 2016–2021 which commits to ‘conduct relevant research on mental health prevalence and service utilisation to inform strategies to address Indigenous mental health service needs into the future’. This aims to address the lack of data and research available to guide evidence-based mental health system planning for First Nations people.
