Abstract

One of our greatest health challenges is to develop highly-personalised interventions for teenagers and young adults with emerging mood disorders, like major depression or bipolar disorder. This new Australian centre combines our national expertise and links it with research innovation and training in key European and North American centres. It tests the viability of selecting the best treatments for young people with mood disorders on the basis of novel genetic, neuropsychological, circadian, imaging, immunological or clinical methods.
