Phoenix Australia – Centre for Posttraumatic Mental Health


Phoenix Australia is Australia’s national centre of excellence in posttraumatic mental health, and an independent not-for-profit organisation affiliated with the University of Melbourne. It promotes recovery for the 15 million Australians affected by trauma, working with individuals, organisations and the community to understand, prevent, and recover from the potential adverse effects of trauma.

Its research and evaluation program is internationally recognised, advancing knowledge of the impact of trauma on the health and wellbeing of trauma survivors, their families and the community.  Phoenix also establishes the standards of best practice for the management of trauma, and works with organisations to minimise the impact of trauma in the workplace and promote recovery.

Education and training programs also give practitioners the skills and knowledge to provide practical, effective support and treatment to help those affected by trauma.
