PROMOTING MENTAL HEALTH AND PREVENTING MENTAL ILLNESSES IN MARGINALISED YOUNG PEOPLE
Grant number: 1080820 | Funding period: 2015 - 2019
I will use system change to improve mental health and social function for young people in Out of Home Care. These young people typically have serious disadvantage and trauma early in life and complex mental health and social problems. I will devise and implement sustainable mental health interventions that respond to their needs. Successful implementation has the potential to improve knowledge about strategies for therapeutic approaches to care and better mental health and social outcomes.
