Research Showcase

We Know You Have Published!  

We’re producing a bibliography of the research our sector produces. We know a number of NADA/MHCC members and stakeholders have been published in peer reviewed journals and other places of influence in the last five years.

We’d love to showcase your work, so please forward the abstract and/or article to the CMHDARN Project Coordinator,

Why Showcase Research?

Research in its broadest sense is a contribution to knowledge. The purpose of this bibliography is to showcase the significant contributions to knowledge being made within and across our sectors by members of the Network of Alcohol and Other Drugs Agencies (NADA) and the Mental Health Coordinating Council (MHCC).

Research Showcase provides a bibliography of largely peer-reviewed research published by MHCC and NADA member organisations within the last five years, covering a range of areas of practice. The bibliography is organised into the following thematic areas, although there is often considerable overlap between these areas:

  • co-existing issues
  • alcohol and other drugs
  • mental health
  • tobacco
  • rural and remote communities and homelessness
  • young people, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, queer, questioning and intersex communities, as well as people from non-English speaking backgrounds
  • conference papers and reports that are not yet peer-reviewed, but may well result in peer-reviewed publication in the future.

At the end of this document you will also find:

A brief summary of three recent reports that provide a springboard for understanding current government thinking around research priorities. Each of these reports specifically identifies the connection between research, knowledge sharing, service innovation and improvement, and keeping people well in the community. This summary is included because it is very likely that sector sustainability will be increasingly tied to the kinds of research activity and innovation that is beginning to be mapped out here.
