Research Grants

Research into mental illness

One Door Mental Health is dedicated to being at the forefront of knowledge about mental illness. As part of this commitment, we have established a Research Trust Fund and the Peter Meyer Fund for Research into Schizophrenia. We also assisted with the establishment of the Psychosis Australia Trust. 

One Door proactively seeks and develops partnerships with researchers at universities. These partnerships range from the provision of our consumer educators, the evaluation of a program, a partnership wherein a staff member or One Door is actively involved in the research, to other joint ventures. Many organisations will also seek our help in sourcing participants for studies. See more information on studies looking for participants.
