In any one year, over two million Australians will experience anxiety and a further one million will be affected by depression.

Co-led by the Black Dog Institute and Everymind, and supported by funding from the Australian Government Department of Health, The Prevention Hub is Australia’s first collaboration focusing on preventive research in depression and anxiety. By partnering in this work, we are uniquely positioned to fast-track and scale interventions with the strongest evidence-based approach to prevention.

Our research projects focus on implementing and evaluating preventive strategies in workplace, school/education and healthcare settings to achieve the greatest possible impact and reach.

About anxiety and depression

Anxiety and depression are leading causes of poor health and represent a substantial health, social and economic burden for Australia.

It is estimated that preventive strategies could lower the incidence of anxiety and depression by 20 percent. To achieve this, we must take the knowledge we have about anxiety and depression and put it into practice for prevention and intervention in a wide range of settings.
