Vision and Mission
The Mental Health Research Institute has amalgamated with the Florey Neuroscience Institutes to form The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health.
The research focus remains as it was on psychiatric conditions such as depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia and on neurodegenerative illnesses including dementias particularly Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease.
We continue to raise funds to ensure we can continue vital research and are grateful for your ongoing support. Professor Colin Masters continues on as Executive Director of MHRI and as an Executive Director of the amalgamated entity.
