Data for Uni Sydney to deliver mental health help

The BHP Foundation is giving Uni Sydney’s Brain and Mind Centre $12.8m for a five-year programme of data-driven mental health modelling targeting young people

The project will forecast needs and test responses in eight primary health networks across Australia.

While not focused specifically on students, the announcement follows the Productivity Commission calling on universities to provide mental health support for their undergraduates, (CMM yesterday). Universities with catchments covering the health networks might want to get in touch.
