Young and Well CRC

Young and Well Cooperative Research Centre is an Australia-based, international research centre that unites young people together with researchers, practitioners and policy makers from over 75 partner organisations across the non-profit, academic, government, local businesses and corporate sectors.

The Young and Well CRC was established by the Australian Government in 1991 and it is part of the Cooperative Research Centres Program,

The objective of the Cooperative Research Centres Program is to deliver significant economic, environmental and social advantages to Australia by supporting end-user driven research partnerships. CRCs address clearly articulated, major challenges that require medium to long-term collaborative efforts. CRCs link researchers with practitioners and end-users to focus Research and Development efforts on tackling particular challenges for Aussies. CRCs pursue solutions to these challenges that are innovative and to become effectively used and benefited by end-users.

Young and Well CRC is to research and explore the role of technology in young people’s lives, and then to determine how these technologies can be applied to better improve the mental health and well-being of those young groups of people aging from 12 to 25.
