Celebrating Success

Professor Ellie Fossey, Head of Occupational Therapy, was recently successful in a NHMRC Partnership Project Application titled "Building the Evidence Base for Prevention and Recovery Care Services". The project involves seven inter-related studies designed to evaluate the appropriateness, effectiveness and efficiency of Victoria's Prevention and Recovery Care Services (PARCS), which are residential services for people with severe mental disorders. The project represents a partnership between universities, PARCS providers, clinical services and the Victorian Government, and will actively engage service users and their carers and other experts.

The project is worth $365,902.90 and is led by The Centre for Mental Health, Melbourne School of Population and Global Health, University of Melbourne, and Monash University.
