We were thrilled to host a thought-provoking discussion of the megatrends in youth mental health and the role of policy in addressing the impact on young people’s lives for the launch of the Orygen Institute in early May.
The Orygen Institute aims to elevate and expand the conversation about youth mental health. We will continue to translate evidence-based and innovative approaches to mental health care into policy change, as well as influence broader social, environmental and economic policies that are impacting the wellbeing of young people.
Through a convergence of diverse voices, perspectives and expertise from within and beyond the mental health sector the Institute aims to be a collaboratively project that shapes new narratives, drives innovation, and influences the national and international policy agenda.
Watch a highlights video from the launch of the Orygen Institute on Wednesday 4 May. Hear our expert panel discuss the megatrends in youth mental health and why policy matters.
