A mentally healthy future for all children

About Embrace

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

Led by some of the top mental health researchers in Australia, Embrace will find new ways to help kids at the lowest times in their lives – when they’re experiencing trauma, depression, anxiety, and thoughts of suicide or self-harm. We work with service providers who share our passion and focus on the early detection and intervention of mental health issues in young minds.

Embrace seeks to give kids and communities the tools they need to better cope with challenges they face, be it at home, at school or work, or online.
