Key Research Areas

Testing the impact of the Be Well programs and its different formats

We are running a number of studies that aim to investigate the impact of different formats of the Be Well programs, across a number of different population groups.

Studying the overlap between mental illness and mental wellbeing

We conduct foundational research into the overlap between states of mental illness and states of wellbeing, and use this research to improve practice and policy.

Improving the way mental health measurement is conducted

We are conducting theoretical research into wellbeing measurement, which we use to;

1) test the validity of questionnaires, and

2) design new measurement tools. 

Tracking the prevalence of wellbeing across the Australian population

We have been studying the prevalence of mental wellbeing across the South Australian population since 2019.
