We are very proud to present the findings of the Life Connections Scoping Project, which was coordinated by Tanya Pauli-Myer.  Tanya spent several months researching and engaging with a cross-section of the community including but not limited to service providers, peer workers and clients.  The research project was conducted by Lifeline Darling Downs & South West Qld Ltd (LDDSWQL) and funded by the Darling Downs and West Moreton PHN (DDWMPHN). Tanya’s work highlights “the need for effective and coordinated investment in mental health to ensure that those who need support can access it easily and quickly. It also calls for a greater focus on prevention and early intervention to reduce the prevalence of mental health issues before they escalate. It is possible and necessary to prioritise mental health by creating supportive environments and establishing and supporting community-based mental health services that can provide universal coverage. Furthermore, it is crucial that successful service integration is achieved to ensure the best possible outcomes for those in need”.
