Biloela Youth Mental Health and Wellbeing Project
Improving the lives of young people in Biloela
Thanks to a generous donation from Biloela Medical Centre Ltd, CQRH are working to improve the mental health of young people in Biloela. But we can’t do that alone. We need the input of all members of the community but especially youth. Too often, decisions are made about the lives of young people with little or no input from them. This is true at the individual, local, and societal levels.
We want to place young people at the centre of creating positive change for themselves. We want to build on strengths, focus on what’s important to young people, and work together to create a better Biloela.

Ideas we have to make Biloela a better place
We still need to work together to figure out the best ways to improve the mental health and wellbeing of young people in Biloela. We do have a few ideas that might work.
- Delivering mental health and resilience training in key parts of the community. Examples of programs which might be delivered are Teen Mental Health First Aid, Girls With a Purpose, Positive Parenting Program and Calm CARE. Examples of setting where this training could be delivered include schools, sporting associations and clubs.
- Expanding youth services. We want to figure out what services are available in the community, if there are services that people don’t know about and what the gaps are.
- Creating a safe and accessible space for young people. This space could also be used for co-located services, youth engagement programs and outreach services.
