About the RANZCP Foundation
The RANZCP Foundation is the College charity translating donations into world-class psychiatric research, clinical work, meaningful initiatives, and innovative projects that improve the mental health and wellbeing of communities in Australia, Aotearoa New Zealand and neighbouring regions.
Transforming mental health care, creating a world of potential.
By promoting research and fostering innovation and partnerships, we build knowledge and skills. We support individuals, families and their communities to achieve and maintain mental health and wellbeing throughout the lifespan.
The RANZCP Foundation is committed to advancing these areas:
- Preventing and treating mental illness
The RANZCP Foundation seeks to prevent the occurrence of all mental illness. When illness does occur, the risk of recurrence should be reduced and individuals should be enabled to recover and live a meaningful and productive life. Access to mental health care should be equitable, accessible, streamlined, and evidence-informed. Recognising the limits of current treatments, the RANZCP Foundation will provide leadership and partner with those with lived experience, and related services, to incorporate neuroscience and technology and to develop innovation across the broad range of mental health interventions.
- Supporting the mental health of diverse communities
Reflecting the collaborative and integrative way in which psychiatrists work, the RANZCP Foundation will provide leadership and support a systematic approach to building connections across and within our diverse communities. By embracing diversity and supporting the participation of all within our communities, we will reduce stigma, create mental wealth and deliver social, cultural and economic benefits, and by fostering a diversity of approaches, we will help to build engaged communities where everyone is respected, valued and has a sense of belonging.
- Maintaining mental health and wellbeing across the lifespan
Good mental health starts with healthy families; poor mental health can go across generations and is strongly interlinked with poor physical health. The RANZCP Foundation will build positive experiences in childhood that lead to healthy ageing, and will invest in research, projects and partnerships that build positive health throughout the lifespan – and for future generations.
