CRC for Mental Health

The CRC for Mental Health was established and supported under the Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) Program, an Australian Government Initiative administered by the Department of Industry.

The CRC program supports industry-led collaborations between researchers, industry and the community. The CRC Program was established in 1990 and since then CRCs have developed important new technologies, products and services that help solve major economic, environmental and social challenges facing Australia.

Australia’s network of CRCs operates across all sectors of Australia’s economy and society. CRCs are currently operating in areas as diverse as hearing, healthcare, pest management, bushfire and natural hazards management, financial markets security and the auto and aerospace industries. As well as commercialising leading-edge research taking place in our universities and research institutions, CRCs are producing graduates with hands-on industry experience. This is helping create a highly-skilled workforce for the nation.
