Órama is an ancient Greek term for vision. It represents our commitment to use insights from the experiences of people affected by mental health challenges and our research into the human mind and brain to improve the services that we provide or to prevent the need for such services.
We are a multi-disciplinary research institute based at Flinders University, representing an unique blend of research capabilities centred on the disciplines of applied neuroscience, psychology, allied health, social science, education and public health.
Our research takes a whole-of-person approach, incorporating research at the brain and cellular level through to research around people’s experiences, health systems, service delivery models and educational or preventative science.
We will enable impactful research that will ultimately improve mental health and wellbeing outcomes for all people and communities across Australia and the work.
That is our commitment.
