The University of Sydney’s has launched YOUTHe, a five-year Centre of Research Excellence (CRE) in suicide prevention for young people. The initiative comes as online and phone counselling services for young Australians face unprecedented demand during COVID-19. The Centre combines evidence-based research with unique modelling techniques to plan, implement and evaluate emerging technologies to better support youth mental health. It aims to give every young person presenting with suicidal behaviour access to evidence-based, personalised and ongoing health care. Find out more.
