Together, we can create a life free from mental illness.

Mental illness is going to be the biggest health challenge in our lifetime. It consumes lives, it ruins lives and it takes lives.

Right now, one in five Australians has a mental health issue, and more people between 15-44 years are dying from suicide than any other cause.

This is not acceptable.

Breakthrough is Australia’s first – and only – foundation purely focused on raising funds to invest in life-changing mental health research.

Our goal is to fund evidence-based research to better understand what causes mental illness, how to reduce its impact and ultimately prevent mental illness from happening in the first place.

Join us in creating a life free from mental illness.

Funded research projects

Research Themes

Research will find the causes and triggers of mental illness, help us to recognise the early warning signs, guide the development of new technology, and make sure that mental health treatment is based on the best scientific evidence.

Research breakthroughs will ultimately prevent and cure mental illness.
