Abstract:Major reform of mental health services in Australia has been taking place. In Queensland, the Queensland Mental Health Plan set out specific objectives and strategies for implementing mental health services reform which have had an impact on the professional role of staff working in those services. A pilot study, using a qualitative design, was conducted to examine the impact of restructuring mental health services on occupational therapy. The results of this study indicate a commitment to the profession of occupational therapy, enthusiasm, and a highly perceived sense of competence in and contributions to mental health.
