Youth Mental Health (Orygen)


Orygen is one of the world’s leading research and knowledge translation organizations focusing on mental ill-health in young people.  It is one of only two medical research institutes in Australia focusing exclusively on mental health.

Through its work, Orygen has created a new, more positive approach to the prevention and treatment of mental health disorders and has developed new models of care for young people with emerging disorders.  This work has been translated into a worldwide shift in services and treatments to include a primary focus on getting well and staying well, as well as healthcare models that include partnership with young people and families.
