The Economics of mental health research stream at Deakin Health Economics undertakes a broad program of economics research with the aim of providing high quality evidence to help ensure mental health care provision is efficient, effective and appropriate to individual and broader community needs.

In order to achieve this goal, the team undertakes research focusing on the practical application of economic methodologies to the mental health context. This includes, but is not limited to, practical and applied economic evaluations of various mental health focused interventions as well as tailored methodological research ensuring that economic methodologies are appropriate and robust for use within the mental health context.
