Research Stream: Policy and Epidemiology

Led by Professor Harvey Whiteford, the research of the Policy and Epidemiology Group (PEG) aims to determine the burden of mental disorders and how services can be implemented to reduce their impact. The Policy and Epidemiology Group conduct studies that:

  • determine the prevalence distribution and risk factors of mental disorders
  • estimate the mortality and disability from mental disorders
  • model and evaluate service system interventions for mental disorders
  • develop measures of service performance
  • analyse and inform mental health policy
