The Centre for Adolescent Health aims to improve young people’s life chances because adolescence is as much about new opportunities as new risks. As an Australian centre of excellence, and a WHO Collaborative centre, we are unique in focusing on adolescence as a critical life stage. This includes the transition from childhood into adolescence, and the transition beyond adolescence into adult life.
The Centre for Adolescent Health works closely with the Department of Adolescent Medicine which comprises a number of specialist services for adolescents and young adults. Please see the Department of Adolescent Medicine website for more detail.
We are part of The Royal Children's Hospital, in Melbourne, Australia. Our key partners for Research and Education are the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute, and The University of Melbourne.
