Clinical Mental Health Research

Hunter researchers are working to bring research findings into clinical practice to improve the care of and treatments for people with mental illnesses.

Research in this area covers a wide variety of topics ranging from palliative care, psycho-oncology, rural mental health, social determinants of mental health, mental health with HIV infection/AIDS, psychotic disorders, depression, suicide, personality disorders, and alcohol/other drug use problems.

With the aim of providing evidence-based treatment to all individuals who need it, Hunter researchers are uniquely positioned in collaboration with University of Newcastle’s Priority Research Centre for Translational Neuroscience and the Hunter New England Area Health Mental Health Service to deliver meaningful outcomes to patients. 

Research studies in this field include both prevention based studies and clinical interventions and treatment models. Neuroscience models and neuroimaging including MRI, fMRI (functional MRIs) and PET scans are all used to inform clinical outcomes.
