A NEW research centre to be opened on the Sunshine Coast will work to help arrest alarming rates of youth suicide across Australia.
The University of the Sunshine Coast has teamed with University of Sydney’s Brain and Mind Research Institute to bring together research and clinical practice to improve the care of young people suffering depression and mental illness.
A donation by Maroochydore philanthropists Roy and Nola Thompson has advanced the program by more than five years.
It is hoped the new research and clinical practice centre at Birtinya will be up and running by year’s end.
USC Chancellor Father John Dobson (pictured) said yesterday youth suicide and mental health were two of the biggest negative impacts being felt by the region.
Suicide is the leading cause of death in young Australians aged 15-24.
