Message from CEO and Chair

Laura Collister, CEO and Michael Gorton, Chair, discuss the achievements and challenges the organisation has experienced over the last 12 months. 2022-23 saw us go through a challenging referendum, and we also had to adapt to unforeseen cuts to some of our programs. But Wellways has also grown again by opening two new Mental Health and Wellbeing Locals to the community, providing suicide prevention services in Queensland, and securing a two-year extension to our Carer Gateway contract.

What else has happened? Find out in the videos below.

People, Culture and Quality

The Wellways People & Culture and Quality & Safety teams reached significant milestones over the past twelve months. These achievements include higher staff retention rates, a comprehensive recruitment drive as part of the Mental Health Reform, and the release of new forms and support tools that put the person at the centre.
