It is estimated that four million Australians experience a mental health disorder every year. Almost half of all Australians will be affected by a mental illness at some point in their lifetime.

The Clinical Trials Activity initiative will support research into the use of innovative therapies to combat illnesses such as post-traumatic stress disorder, addiction disorders and eating disorders.

This is an initiative of the Medical Research Future Fund.
