Our collaboration

We are partnering with Orygen, Australia’s center for excellence in youth mental health, and its affiliated youth mental health fellows and advisors, on a global research collaboration exploring multiple dimensions of health for different generations, with an initial focus on the drivers and detractors of Gen Z’s brain health. In partnership with Orygen and youth around the world, we are informing how employers, governments, and communities can support a healthy future for this generation. The findings will be openly available to drive positive changes for youth mental health at local, national, and international levels.
