As the only medical research institute in Australia to investigate mental health across the lifespan, our aim is to create a mentally healthier world for everyone. We do this through ‘translational’ research. Integrating our research studies, education programs, digital tools and apps, clinical services, and public resources to discover new solutions, foster connections and create real-world change.
Our partnerships with people with lived experience, federal, state and local governments, communities, schools, corporate Australia and others in the mental health sector enables us to drive evidence-informed change in mental health where it’s needed most.
Working with young people, our partners and one another, we're redefining what's possible in Global Youth Mental Health Research, Policy, Education and Clinical Care.
Blue Knot Foundation actively advocates for systemic change in the community, and for government policy.
Historically, the needs of Australian adult survivors of childhood trauma and abuse have not been a community or government priority. The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse was ground-breaking. The National Redress Scheme, from July 1 2018-2028 is also a watershed achievement. But much more needs to be done to address the needs of all adults experiencing childhood trauma and abuse.
Blue Knot Foundation is not able, however, to provide individual advocacy services to survivors.
We reach all faces of Australia—from children, families and the elderly, to those struggling with homelessness, addiction, mental health, financial or domestic challenges. And we walk alongside them to help them face life’s challenges and create the life they want.
