RUN Bid Wins Regional Research Collaboration Fund
RUN researchers have received a boost to support their regional mental health efforts, with a collaborative RUN mental health program securing funding under the Regional Research Collaboration fund.
Led by Professor Myfanwy Maple from the University of New England and in collaboration with RUN universities, the successful project aims to create the next generation of mental health researchers to address regional, rural and remote mental health challenges across the nation.
RUN Executive Director, Alec Webb, said “with our combined geographic footprint across the nation, RUN is best placed to drive solutions to the health challenges of our regions and improve our overall regional wellbeing.”
The project will develop a comprehensive virtual training platform for mental health researchers; build the mental health and wellbeing of individuals, priority populations and regional communities; and develop a data toolkit to assist in decreasing mental health related morbidity and mortality among regional Australians.
Additionally, our member universities, Federation University, CQUniversity and Charles Sturt University also received funding support under the Scheme for projects in hydrogen, agriculture and drought resilience and water engineering.
