Advancing Mental Health Research: The Pioneering Work of Australian Rotary Health

Australian Rotary Health (ARH) is one of the largest independent funders of mental health research within Australia.

ARH provides funding towards research grants, fellowships and PhD scholarships focused on finding preventative and curative solutions for mental illness in young Australians. From 2023, ARH funding focus narrowed to the mental health of children aged 0-12.

ARH also provide funding into a broad range of general health areas, provide scholarships for rural medical and nursing students, as well as Indigenous health students.

Australian Rotary Health provides funding into areas of health that do not readily attract funding, and promotes findings to the community.
