The Young and Well CRC is one of 37 Cooperative Research Centres operating as part of the Australian Government’s Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) Program. Like all CRCs, the Young and Well CRC links researchers with practitioners and end-users to focus research and development efforts on tackling specific challenges.
The Young and Well CRC promotes cybersafety, mental health and wellbeing through three complementary research programs mapped to specific groups of young people.
These programs, through 12 major research projects, will deliver: The first consolidated Australian data on young people's technology use and its impact on mental health and wellbeing, available through the Young and Well CRC website; education and training programs for over 350 leaders in youth, technology, cybersafety, mental health and wellbeing; proven online services and tools used by young people and professionals for cybersafety, mental health and wellbeing, available through an Online Wellbeing Centre and Virtual Clinics; and resources that support parents, the community and professionals to respond to the cybersafety and the mental health needs of young people.
