Readiness, a start-up who provides businesses tools to support the mental health and wellbeing of employees is investing $2 million to support the CMH’s commitment to mental health research.

“We are excited to sign this research partnership agreement with Readiness,” says Director of the Centre, Professor Greg Murray and Associate Professor Eva Kyndt, who are Swinburne’s leaders of the Readiness partnership.
