Psychosis Trust Australia are pleased to be hosting APC 2018!

Psychosis Australia Trust is supported by Mental Illness Fellowship of Australia


The mission of the Psychosis Australia Trust is to support organisational, investment, and policy capacity to carry out priority-driven research into schizophrenia and bi-polar disorder – with the aim of helping all those affected by these mental illnesses to live better lives now.


Established to be an umbrella organisation and knowledge bank for research and services related to psychosis in Australia, the immediate goals of PAT are to:

  1. Review current research programs and activities being carried out in Australia in relation to psychotic disorders, and developing an evidence-based approach to allocating priorities for further research;
  2. Carry out research and research-related activities in relation to psychotic disorders;
  3. Link the priorities of researchers with those of Australians who have the lived experience of psychosis, through our partnership with consumer and carer organisations across Australia; and
  4. Promote and facilitate the translation of research into practice in relation to psychotic disorders – thereby reducing the burden of disease.
