SANE Australia has announced a new partnership with The University of Melbourne, delivering innovative research to reduce structural stigma and discrimination for the four million Australians impacted by complex mental health issues.
The partnership sees Professor Nicola Reavley, Principal Research Fellow in the Centre for Mental Health at The University of Melbourne’s School of Population and Global Health, appointed Research Director for SANE’s Anne Deveson Research Centre – promoting social and economic inclusion for Australians with lived experience of complex mental health issues, their family, friends and colleagues.
Last week was a momentous one for those of us advocating for change across the mental health landscape. On Monday the Federal Government released the Productivity Commission’s inquiry into mental health final report and the Prime Minister Scott Morrison gave a keynote address underscoring his government’s commitment to mental health reform.
