Research and the Campus Mental Health Strategy

Melbourne Children’s Campus has a proud history of conducting world-leading research that improves the health and wellbeing of children and their carers.

Campus Mental Health Research Strategy activities build on this foundation to ...

  • Unite colleagues to create opportunities for novel research. 
  • Provide skills and resources to ensure rapid translation of high quality research into practice. 
  • Support staff to engage in research in their areas of expertise. 
  • Have lived experience at the heart of our activities, from inception to implementation of research ideas.

Our campus mental health strategy will sustain evidence-based mental health care through innovative, translatable clinically-led research projects which are co-designed with people with lived experience. We will enhance and foster a culture of excellence by supporting our teams to participate in collaborative research that partners with Experts by Experience (children, young people, families, and carers) and Experts by Profession (healthcare providers and policy makers).

At Mental Health Central we acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live, gather and work. We recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging.

We acknowledge all people with a lived or living experience of mental ill-health and recovery. At the Campus, we particularly acknowledge children, young people, families, carers, and supporters. We recognise their vital contribution and value the courage of those who share this unique perspective for the purpose of learning and growing together to achieve better outcomes for the Campus, staff, sector, and all people of lived experience.
