BHM co-directors Helena Nguyen and Anya Johnson have been awarded a second major grant from iCare as part of a consortium of Universities: with Curtin and Monash.
The SMART design for care project is an exciting and innovative research project – investigating the effectiveness of work design interventions to improve mental health with industry partners in the health and social assistance industry, to address the increasing mental health compensation claims. This next project will investigate the efficacy of different interventions and how we can scale up the research once there is “proof of concept.”
