AMHOCN Webinar - Living in the Community Questionnaire

10 February, 2021

The Living in the Community Questionnaire (LCQ) is a brief measure of social inclusion that was developed by the Australian Mental Health Outcomes and Classification Network. Neami National has been routinely using the LCQ in a housing and support program (HASI CLS) for people with mental health issues in NSW for two years. In this webinar we will share what we are learning about implementation, about consumer experience of the measure, about what we are seeing in the data and how we are using it. This webinar aims to provoke reflection about the strengths and limitations of standardised measures of social outcome and factors to be considered in the interpretation of LCQ data.
