The Mindgardens Neuroscience Network, launched in early 2019, was established to improve the lives of people who experience mental health, drug and alcohol and neurological disorders. Focused on real-world challenges, Mindgardens builds on the specialist knowledge and strengths of its four founding Member organisations.

Mindgardens is acting as a catalyst to change the way mental health, drug and alcohol and neurological healthcare services are designed and delivered by bringing together people with lived experience, clinicians, researchers, health managers and the community in an integrated manner to focus on outcomes, co-designing new models of care and real system change.

Mindgardens is a company limited by guarantee, established in the Randwick Health and Innovation Precinct.


“When we bring people with lived experience together with researchers, clinicians and system managers, we can create powerful new insights that drive positive change.”

– Prof Jackie Curtis, Mindgardens Executive Director
