Our annual appeal offers a unique opportunity to support an innovative new research project requiring urgent funding. Our 2017-18 appeal supports new twin research into mental health.
With almost half of all Australians aged 16-85, or 10.3 million people, experiencing mental health-related conditions in their lifetime, this research has the potential to a make a significant contribution to the quality of people’s lives.
Mental health conditions can cause distress, and impact on day-to-day lives, relationships and physical health. In particular our study is seeking to better understand the impact of parent mental health on child mental health, and genetic and environmental factors at play.
Our 2017 Annual Appeal is supporting twin research to better understand the impact of parent mental health on child mental health.
$50 Allows us to recruit a twin pair to the Children of Twins Mental Health Study.
$100 Supports a twin pair to participate in the study looking at genetic and environmental factors in mental health.
$200 Supports our educational program to translate findings throughout the mental health field.
$500 Allows us to support an Early Career Researcher. Young researchers rarely have sufficient funding to access TRA for their studies. Help us to support the next generation of leading researchers.
Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.
