Mental health in the national spotlight – Productivity Commission report calls for universal family and parenting support

December 15, 2020

Early childhood checks on social and emotional development, more access to evidence-based parenting support, and an expansion of online and tele-health services are some of the key recommendations made by the national Productivity Commission, amid calls for a new national approach to mental health.

The Commission’s Final Report into Mental Health calls for urgent action, as mental health is costing the country billions.

“We applaud the Commission’s call for expanding the provision of evidence-based online parenting programs,” says Carol Markie-Dadds, Country Director for Triple P International.

“The evidence-based Triple P – Positive Parenting Program®, including the online version, is already free for Queensland parents.”

Queensland doctors may be able to undertake free training to deliver Primary Care Triple P, thanks to Queensland Government funding.

This is an RACGP CPD Accredited Activity 219094 - allocated 40 CPD points in the 2020-22 triennium.

Training is now via remote learning / video conference.
