For the Media

For the MediaThe media team at Orygen is available to assist Australian and international journalists with information about young people and their mental health.

We provide authoritative commentary on a wide range of issues including psychosis, at risk mental states, personality disorders, depression and suicide. Our strong advocacy and reform charter allows our researchers to debate and inform government policy through the media.

We issue regular media releases and other material that may assist journalists in their reporting and understanding of youth mental health.

We are also able to provide interviews and comments from young people who have been through our system, their carers and the clinicians who treat them.
