About the Evidence Based Practice Unit (EBPU)

We conduct research develop tools, provide trainings, evaluate evidence interventions and disseminate evidence across four themes:

Risk - What are the range of contexts and conditions that put a child or young person at risk of mental health issues?

Resilience - What is is that enables some children to cope better than others in difficult circumstances?

Change - What influences change in children's mental health and wellbeing over time?

Choice - What is the positive impact of children, families and practitioners making decisions together, and what are the ways this can happen?
