Abstract

The aim of Self Help Queensland's (SHQ) Mercury Rising project is to 'build the capacity of current mental health support groups across Queensland and to assist the development of new and emerging groups.' (SHQ, 2008). As part of the capacity‐building process, the Healthy Communities Research Centre at the University of Queensland was invited to provide an independent evaluation of the programme.

The evaluation process included discussion of capacity building based on the social science literature; documentation gathered by SHQ in the course of its project; information gathered from key personnel, observational data of network meetings; interviews and written commentary gathered from network meeting participants.
