Welcome to the Western Australian Mental Health Research Alliance (WAMHRA)

Improving mental health interventions and services to address the complex challenges of mental illness relies on collaborative efforts, integrative strategies, and the cost-effective use of existing resources.  With Western Australia at a forefront of international mental health research, the Western Australian Mental Health Research Alliance (WAMHRA) was created to support collaborative efforts towards strong research partnerships.
