Mental health research at Sydney Nursing School is aimed at understanding and improving the experience of mental health, illness and service delivery for mental health consumers and their family/carers; and translating research knowledge into effective mental health practice.
In collaboration with national and international researchers and industry partners our program of research is focused in three key areas of health policy and research priority:
- Prevention and early intervention with at-risk groups (eg children and families living with mental illness)
- Preventing and/or managing co-associated physical and mental health/illness (eg physical health of people with mental illness)
- Developing the capacity of the health workforce (eg building capacity to manage challenging interpersonal health care situations).
