The Queensland Mental Health Commission (QMHC) has engaged LivSmart to develop, implement and report on the evaluation of the QMHC Better Futures Grants for 2018-2019, and to build the capacity of grant recipients to conduct local level evaluations.

The Queensland Mental Health Commission’s (QMHC) Better Futures Grants for 2018-2019 aims to improve the mental health and wellbeing, and social inclusion of people with a lived experience of mental illness, problematic alcohol and other drug use, or those impacted by suicide, through focusing on employment and housing.

The QMHC will fund five organisations to develop, implement and evaluate emerging and innovative initiatives that enhance employment, vocational or safe housing opportunities for people with lived experience.

The QMHC has engaged LivSmart to

  • develop, implement and report on the evaluation of the QMHC Better Futures Grants for 2018-2019, and
  • to build the capacity of and support grant recipients to undertake comprehensive evaluations of grants at a local level.

The project commenced in January 2019 and is due for completion in late 2021.
