Centre for Research Excellence in Adolescent Health
This partnership, made up of esteemed researchers from seven Australian universities, has been tasked with making health services work for adolescents in the digital age. Key to the initiative is the researchers’ intention to work collaboratively with policy makers, community workers and clinicians, as well as young people.
The challenge was to develop branding and a digital presence that would engage four distinctly different audiences: academics, bureaucrats, advocates and teenagers. Wellbeing Health & Youth (WH&Y) was launched in October 2018 and will deepen its digital presence over the years to come.
The Friday Collective helped us think about what we wanted from our Centre of Research Excellence in Adolescent Health, right from the beginning. They had many unique and wonderful ideas we would not have considered. We feel confident that our new virtual centre is something wonderful; we are proud of it and everyone is excited to a part of it.
