selectability is a not-for-profit community mental health service supporting the communities of northern and western Queensland. While selectability is a new name in the region, it is a merger of Supported Options in Lifestyle and Access Services (SOLAS) and Mental Illness Fellowship North Queensland (MIFNQ) - which have a combined 50 years’ industry experience.

Contemporary recovery oriented practice
The key elements of the contemporary frameworks listed below are embedded in all services delivered by selectability and our partners.
- Community Mental Health Practice Framework (Health and Community Services Workforce Council - 2012)
- A national framework for recovery oriented mental health services (Australian Health Ministers Advisory Council - 2013)
- National Standards for Mental Health Services (Department of Health - 2010)
selectability is accredited against The Human Services Quality Framework (Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services - 2012). We participate in a quality assurance process annually to maintain accreditation.
At the heart of these standards and frameworks is a deep respect for human rights that acknowledges and recognises that the person is best placed to know what he/she needs to live a life of choice, purpose, meaning and citizenship.
