We are constantly forging new paths and pushing past old limitations. We back ourselves to tackle the challenges that no one has been able to take on before.
We're leading a revolution
in youth mental health -
relentlessly redefining what's possible in global research.
Australia's first and only youth mental health policy think tank, we don't play it safe. We work side-by-side with the young minds we're here for. We create better outcomes for young people and their families.
The breadth and depth of our expertise
puts us in a unique position to go beyond barriers - to set new benchmarks in youth mental health. We know what works; let us share our knowledge with you.
Never satisfied with what's good enough,
we bridge research with clinical care to create and deliver innovative services like no other mental health organisation in the world.
Our evidence-based research, policy development, educational and clinical care work has delivered some major changes – transforming the way we support young minds.
We never settle for anything less than revolutionary – delivering real results that reshape mental health in Australia and around the world.
