SOCIAL INCLUSION AND RECOVERY

Led by Dr Geoffrey Waghorn, the Queensland Centre for Mental Health Research’s Social Inclusion and Recovery Group is working to develop and trial the systems, measures and interventions needed to help people with severe and persistent mental illnesses to become active and included members of the wider community. A planned future direction is to identify the rehabilitation needs and priorities of people with mental illnesses who become involved in the criminal justice system.
