Alliance Working Group

Following the July 2023 Forum, an Alliance working group was established to progress work related to the following two priorities:

  1. Improving children, young people and families’ experiences of mental health services
  2. Improving service and system responses for children and young people with mental health concerns and complex, co-occurring concerns


The Working Group met for the first time in November 2023 and includes both community sector and government representatives. The role of the Working Group is to:

  1. Identify, promote and progress tasks, projects and other initiatives that pertain to the key priorities.
  2. Act as a conduit to the broader Alliance for initiatives pertaining to the key priorities, including existing projects and reforms.
  3. Identify opportunities for consultation with the broader Alliance membership, including through but not limited to Alliance forums.
  4. Make recommendations to the broader Alliance regarding the two key priorities.
