Abstract: The Central Queensland Emotional and Social Well-Being Regional Centre, located in Rockhampton, Central Queensland was established in July 2001 after a long process of discussions, consultation, negotiation and planning within the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. This
process involved numerous stakeholders, including community based organisations, government departments and agencies. The stakeholders developed a Community Consultative Group (CCG) and a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). The CCG and the MOU ensure that there is a framework
for which all stakeholders and the community can collectively work to meet the emotional and social well-being needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as determined by us. The model established in Central Queensland by us as a community is now being explored by other Aboriginal
and Torres Strait Islander communities.
