CREDIT was established in 2018 after being awarded a grant from the National Health and Medical Research Council.
The Centre of Research Excellence for the Development of Innovative Therapies for Psychiatric Disorders (CREDIT) has a single goal: working collaboratively to discover and create novel treatments to empower those with some of the most disabling mental disorders – like depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia.
Despite the dedication of mental health professionals, some of our foremost treatments for conditions like bipolar disorder have not changed in decades – not because they are perfect, but because we have not found better alternatives. The researchers at CREDIT combine multiple threads of inquiry that flow between four pillars of research and beyond. They link with a range of other actors in mental health, and they want to see the ideas from research move into practice, to feed a better future for mental health.
