Congratulations to A/Prof Tim Slade and Dr Cath Chapman on receiving a 2015 Mental Health Matters Award at the 2015 Mental Health Month launch at NSW Parliament House.


The award was presented by The Hon. Pru Goward and was accepted by Prof Maree Teesson and Dr Louise Mewton for the Research and Evaluation category for 'Future proofing: Mapping the changing landscape of anxiety, depression and substance use problems among young Australians'.


In collaboration with seven international universities, A/Prof Tim Slade & Dr Cath Chapman have led a world-class research program that is at the forefront of improving evidence regarding the prevention and treatment of comorbid disorders. Integrating a number of scientific disciplines, their rigorous and innovative research aims to map the changing landscape of mental and substance use disorders among young people. Translating their ground-breaking research into practice, they have also developed a national trial of an effective online program for the prevention of drug and alcohol harms, anxiety and depression in adolescents. In the hopes of further practical application, their findings have been extensively communicated to clinicians, policymakers and community members both nationally and internationally.
