AMA Queensland supports and delivers numerous public health initiatives throughout the year to educate both the general public and health care practitioners.
These campaigns are developed according to the demand for information in the community across a broad range of public health and policy issues. Recent campaigns have included our acclaimed Suicide Watch video which share awareness about the services GP’s can offer when dealing with depression and related conditions.
Our 2011 See the Signs campaign, developed in response to the devastating Queensland floods of 2011, was relaunched following the floods in January 2013. See the Signs encouraged people to be alert to signs of distress and mental health issues in themselves and others as families and communities struggled to cope with another large-scale natural disaster.
