A mentally healthy future for all children

About Embrace

Embrace @ Telethon Kids Institute is Western Australia’s first research collaboration devoted to the mental health of infants, children and young people ages 0-25.

Our strategy sets out the three research priorities that guide our work. They are based on the findings of our project to identify priorities for infant, child and youth mental health research in Western Australia according to young people, families and mental health professionals.

We work with researchers, the community, service providers and partner organisations to support mental health research across Telethon Kids Institute that aligns with our community-led priorities: the research that the community wants to see happen.
