This research collaboration in Northern Queensland comprises a Law Librarian, Health Librarian and a Public Health researcher with an interest in mental health law. This collaboration developed from librarian support of teaching and research in a Public Health postgraduate subject at JCU at Nguma-bada Campus (Cairns). Students were required to develop systematic review protocols for topics in a subject with substance misuse, mental health, regulation and policy content. Published research in this area is typically found in legal as well as health and social care databases. Hence our collaboration described here.
