Our Institute

Prevention is at the heart of everything we do - in translating and applying research, and in developing policy, programs and resources to support our stakeholders and community.

Everymind is a self-funding not-for-profit Institute of the Hunter New England Local Health District. Working from our base in Newcastle NSW, on the traditional lands of the Awabakal people, we have been delivering best-practice mental health and suicide prevention programs for over 25 years.

We understand prevention approaches and are able to translate evidence to deliver effective and tailored responses that have the capacity to be scaled nationally and globally.

Our Vision
