Professor Jane Pirkis, Centre for Mental Health Director

The Centre for Mental Health aims to improve mental health and mitigate the impact of mental illness at a population level. It does this through high quality, collaborative, interdisciplinary research, academic teaching, professional and community education, and mental health system development.

The Centre contributes to evidence-informed mental health policy and practice in Australia and internationally through the work of its four units:

The Centre’s four units are involved in active and productive collaborations within the University and beyond. These relationships range from not-for-profit agencies like Mind Australia through to international NGOs such as the World Health Organization, and enable us to translate our research into policy and practice.
