Gold Coast Region Carer Support Program Co-Design

Roses in the Ocean have collaborated with Wesley Mission Queensland and Beacon Strategies to develop an effective and meaningful carer support program for people caring for individuals experiencing suicidal crisis.

Thanks also to Gold Coast Hospital and Health Services, Gold Coast Primary Health Network and Queensland Health Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drugs Branch for their contributions to the co-design process.

The design process included three workshops.  The group met in February with the final workshop being held in mid-March.

We were so pleased with the enthusiasm from the people that attended the first two workshops.  The group used their lived experience of caring for someone experiencing suicidal crisis to provide real and relatable content for the development of this program.
