The Collaborative Centre Research Priorities Study

University of Melbourne and Collaborative Centre banner

We are seeking Victorian community opinions to inform the research strategy for the Victorian Collaborative Centre for Mental Health and Wellbeing (‘The Collaborative Centre’).

The Collaborative Centre was recently established in response to recommendations from the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System (RCVMHS). The Centre will provide treatment, care and support to adults and older adults, lead cutting-edge research, and serve as the ‘engine room’ for reform across the sector and its workforce.

Establishing a strategic research plan will be key to The Collaborative Centre’s success.  A total of 18 research priorities across seven areas were recommended for The Collaborative Centre by the RCVMHS or selected by our research team.  The Collaborative Centre needs to determine which of these 18 research priorities should be addressed first, given that its resources are limited.

You can contribute your views by participating in our first Victorian community consultation survey, which is open until December 15. Victorian residents aged 18 and over are eligible to participate. 

We invite you to read more about the survey and to participate by clicking the button below.
