About Us

The wellbeing and mental health research group aims to provide researchers with a highly supported collaborative space to develop wellbeing and mental health research that is insightful, inclusive and inspiring. Our primary goal is to develop research that has a meaningful and wide-ranging impact at various societal levels including improving individual wellbeing and mental health outcomes, facilitating empirically-based approaches to developing wellbeing and mental health at an organisational level (government and non-government), and actively influencing government policy regarding wellbeing and mental health.

The group also aims to facilitate peer learning and development opportunities, provide mentorship of early career researchers, and foster the peer review of research ideas, draft manuscripts and draft grant applications. Longer-term objectives include developing links with other research institutions and with government and non-government organisations.
