The Mindgardens difference: how we work, what we care about
Mindgardens is the first research centre in Australia to focus exclusively on disorders that involve the brain, emotions, nervous system and thinking processes. By bringing these issues together within an integrated, virtual centre of expertise with patients’ lived experience at its centre, we can generate new ideas and approaches that are not constrained by professional disciplines or health system silos.
