Strategies for good mental health and resilience in times of change


Sunshine Coast Mind and Neuroscience – Thompson Institute.

The Sunshine Coast Mind and Neuroscience – Thompson Institute was established by the University of the Sunshine Coast as a hub for world-class mental health research, teaching and clinical services. The Thompson Institute pioneers a unique operating model that integrates clinical services, advocacy, research and education. The result is the fast translation of research breakthroughs into education and practice, contributing to the Institute’s mission to improve outcomes for people experiencing mental illness and find preventions and cures.

Opening in 2018, the Institute is already at the forefront of research for some of Australia’s most pressing mental health issues, including suicide prevention, healthy brain ageing and dementia, post-traumatic stress disorder and youth mental health. The Institute and its people are community-focused and believe partnerships with government and industry and the participation of businesses and the general public in education, research and advocacy are vital to the improvement of mental health on the Sunshine Coast and beyond.
