TRANSLATING SCIENCE INTO BETTER POSTTRAUMATIC MENTAL HEALTH
Grant number: 1073041 | Funding period: 2015 - 2020
Trauma is responsible for a significant amount of mental health problems worldwide. Increasing disasters, violence, and war lead to much trauma in the communities. Unfortunately, most affected people do not receive much-needed care. This Program builds on discoveries from basic science to develop and evaluate clinical and population-based programs to address the range of posttraumatic mental health needs in both Australia and globally.
