The Centre for Mental Health has a range of Australian and International engagements which include the research impacts of our four research units. Find out more below about these impacts as well as how the Melbourne School of Population Health engages with its alumni, partners, and the community.
Research Impact: Mental Health Policy and Practice Unit
Much of our work is commissioned by policy-makers, planners and managers who are trying to determine the best way to deliver services. Our work on suicide and the media has had, and is still having, a major impact.
Research Impact: Population Mental Health Unit
Our work has been instrumental in shaping the ongoing development of Mental Health First Aid training, including the creation of expert consensus guidelines to improve employee mental health in the workplace, and the creation of the consumer guides: ‘What Works for Depression’ and ‘What Works for Anxiety’.
Research Impact: Global and Cultural Mental Health Unit
The Unit has continued to have a significant impact on immigrant and refugee mental health policy, education and practice.
Research Impact: Recovery and Social Justice Unit
The Unit’s achievements are best represented by our continuing success in establishing important, strong and sustainable partnerships with government, mental health community support services and clinical mental health services.
Our pride in our graduates and in their lives spent improving the health and well-being of others is matched by our desire to maintain strong connections with all who have passed through our doors.
We are grateful for the many ways in which our alumni and donors support our work.
We recognise partnerships and collaborations are an integral facet of our development and a major strength of the school.
The School aims to be of value to the community through its teaching, research and program implementation.
