Australian Rotary Health Announces
New Research Funding Focus

Australian Rotary Health (ARH) is undertaking a new initiative to improve the mental health of our youngest Australians, announcing today that their research funding will now focus on the 0-12 age group.
The new research area will be introduced at a symposium titled, ‘Healthy Children, Bright Futures: Improving the Mental Health of 0-12 Year Olds’. The symposium will take place in Sydney in late March next year.
"I think we’re facing some exciting times at Australian Rotary Health as we continue to work towards improving the health of all Australians.”

- Kevin Shadbolt OAM, Chairman of Australian Rotary Health.

“Studies have shown that the overall prevalence of mental disorders experienced by 0-12 year olds has not changed during the past 20 years. As such, we need to find new ways of helping children and their families overcome this terrible problem. That’s what this conference is initiating. The symposium will provide a forum where researchers can describe their current research. They will also provide advice about how Rotary’s funding can be most effectively used to find new ways to help children with mental disorders and their families."

- Professor Michael Sawyer OAM, Medical Adviser to the ARH Board.
