Science. Compassion. Action.

As the only medical research institute in Australia to investigate mental health across the lifespan, our aim is to create a mentally healthier world for everyone.

We do this through ‘translational’ research. Integrating our research studies, education programs, digital tools and apps, clinical services, and public resources to discover new solutions, foster connections and create real-world change.

Our partnerships with people with lived experience, federal, state and local governments, communities, schools, corporate Australia and others in the mental health sector enables us to drive evidence-informed change in mental health where it’s needed most.

Working with you to create mentally healthy school environments

With 75% of mental health problems emerging before the age of 25, we know that the years spent at school are critical in delivering prevention and intervention strategies.

That’s why our evidence-informed school resources, presentations and programs have been developed to help young Australians grow into resilient and mentally healthy adults.
