SHOWCASE PROJECT

Supporting young people experiencing mental illness: NELSON MEERS FOUNDATION AND THE BRAIN & MIND RESEARCH CENTRE

The Nelson Meers Foundation is working with The Brain & Mind Research Institute (BMRI) at the University of Sydney to expand its range of mental health recovery and social connectedness programs by supporting the development and implementation of a 3 year multi-media arts program for young people. A key feature of the program will be its clinical intervention framework.

Our project with the BMRI represents an opportunity for us to begin building clinical support for our advocacy around the importance of the arts to social health and cohesion.

CASE STUDY

THE CHRIS O'BRIEN LIFEHOUSE CHARITABLE BONDS: INVESTMENT FOR COMMUNITY AND SOCIAL BENEFIT

Chris O’Brien Lifehouse is a centre of excellence for cancer care that combines diagnosis, treatment, research, education and emotional support to improve the lives of people affected by the disease. Cancer treatment has been transformed by bringing all aspects of care together in a new model of patient-focussed care. That dream became a reality when the Lifehouse facility opened to patients on     5 November 2013. Read more

The Nelson Meers Foundation assisted in the financing of the Lifehouse Centre by investing in the Chris O'Brien Lifehouse Charitable Bonds in order to provide the Lifehouse with more flexibility than traditional bank debt, and because of the community and social benefits they offer.
