What are the benefits of joining?

  • An opportunity to contribute to ALIVE National Centre’s translational outcomes, including earlier detection of those at-risk of poor mental health outcomes across the life course and preventive interventions to reduce future morbidity
  • Partnership opportunities to conduct implementation, simulation, and rapid adaptations of models of care for implementation and translation, using co-design and innovative methods
  • Collaboration for demonstration projects for models of promise to be scaled up and scaled out, and to be implemented across primary care and community sectors
  • An opportunity to support implementation and evaluation of the ALIVE National Centre’s Translational Roadmap for mental health care in Australia
  • Access to a vibrant community of implementation and translation scientists
  • Opportunities for co-investment with other partners.


What can I expect and what can I contribute?

  • Network member organisations will have access to implementation tools and techniques, including quick guides for research implementation, via the ALIVE National Centre’s digital platform
  • Involvement in cutting edge research and implementation studies for the validation of Centre-developed Clinical Prediction Tools (CPTs)
  • Testing new models of care and innovations that draw on a life-course approach to ensure that the social context and determinants of health are addressed
  • Providing linkages to remove blockages to research translation and adaptation.
