The Mindgardens Neurosciences project

the nation’s first Comprehensive Brain Disorders Centre

The greatest medical challenge of the 21st century is the growing burden of psychiatric and neurological disorders, ageing, drugs and alcohol and related disorders. Together, these disorders are the leading cause of disability and account for about a quarter of the health budget.

Mindgardens is a ground breaking response to this challenge.

Proposed as the nation’s first comprehensive brain disorders centre, Mindgardens will be the solution to this growing health burden through the provision of: 1) translational research, 2) clinical services and eHealth, 3) training and community support, and 4) technological advances and discoveries. Mindgardens will prioritise the six leading medical themes of Depression, Drugs and alcohol, Behavioural change and the developing brain, Dementia, Healthy ageing and Neurodegenerative disorders. It will bring together some of the finest clinicians, most innovative researchers and state of the art technological investigation facilities to provide a high quality ‘one-stop-shop’ for patients and referring clinicians – to deliver the newest and most promising treatments to mental health and ageing for the people of NSW.
