In June 2017, the Australian Government Department of Health and InnoWell entered into a three-year funding agreement for Project Synergy that is focussing on continuing the co-design, development, implementation and evaluation of the InnoWell Platform. The University of Sydney’s Brain and Mind Centre has been subcontracted to provide a research and development group to conduct the research trials within different service settings and priority areas across the lifespan. In these trials, the Platform will be embedded within a number of Australian mental health services and offered to people presenting to those services as part of standard clinical care and practice. Project Synergy also encompasses lived experience led national community consultation and engagement strategies, and an independent monitoring and evaluation framework conducted by the Social Policy Research Centre, University of New South Wales.
