The SAHMRI Wellbeing and Resilience Centre

The Wellbeing and Resilience Centre, within the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI), has a bold vision to build mental health and wellbeing at scale.

South Australia has led a society-wide implementation of wellbeing initiatives, promoted and managed by SAHMRI Wellbeing and Resilience Centre. The Wellbeing and Resilience Centre works alongside esteemed researchers, psychiatrists, and neuroscientists to contribute to SAHMRI's full spectrum of research and is translation to healthcare from depression, suicide and anxiety, all the way to resilience and wellbeing. This focus on building mental health assets and growing human resilience as well as researching and treating mental illness is a global first.
