Research Stream: Child and Youth Mental Health

Mental disorders are the leading cause of disease burden in people under 25 years living in high income countries. Led by Associate Professor James Scott, the Child and Youth Mental Health Research Group aims to improve the health and well-being of young Australians and reduce the burden of illness that accompanies mental disorders. The research consists of three streams: mental illness prevision, neuroimmunology, and the Cadence Trials.

Over the past five years, the Child and Youth Mental Health Research Group has been awarded in excess of $4.5 million in grant funding, including three project grants from the NHMRC. The group has authored more than 90 publications - many in leading international journals.
