We aim to improve the mental health and wellbeing of all Australian Children

 

DEVELOPMENT IN  CHILDHOOD & ADOLESCENCE

Identify targets for mental health programs that will build mental capacity during critical years of development, and promote better outcomes that continue into adolescence and adulthood.

   GOVERNMENT           BENEFITS                                      

Work collaboratively with Government to provide evidence-based findings to inform policy and practice reform in child protection, health and education.

 DATA COLLECTION & ANAYLSIS

Map patterns of resilience and vulnerability in childhood  and adolescence to further understand how these patterns relate to health, wellbeing, education, criminal offending, and work outcomes.

WIDER COMMUNITY BENEFITS

Understand how a population develops in order to help improve government policies and influence community-based action that maximise resilience and good mental health outcomes.
