Grant number: 1076940 | Funding period: 2014 - 2020
Mental ill-health is the major issue facing young Australians and the Australian government has recognised this by investing in the headspace program which by 2016 will see 90 headspace centres operating across the nation. This project uses high quality research methods to establish best practice and ensure ongoing quality improvement and importantly, answer the question: “is headspace effective in addressing the mental health issues of young Australians?”
