The readyforwhatsnext project will collaborate with young people, health professionals, policymakers and researchers to map existing evidence about resilience in children and young people, resulting in a shared understanding of resilience and to identify innovative policy solutions that can both develop the resilience of young Victorians and deliver wider social and economic benefits.

The project will also develop a computer simulation model to help identify feasible, affordable, fair and cost-effective health policies that better enhance the resilience of young Victorians.

readyforwhatsnext is funded by VicHealth, the Victorian Health Promotion Foundation and is led by researchers from Orygen, the National Centre of Excellence in Youth Mental Health; Deakin Health Economics; Flinders University and Victoria University.
