Turner Institute for Brain and Mental Health

Turner Institute for Brain and Mental Health

The Turner Institute for Brain and Mental Health is the result of a transformational gift by the late David Winston Turner to detect and treat mental health conditions, improving the lives of millions of sufferers.

Across its three overarching themes – Developing Well, Living Well, and Ageing Well – the Turner Institute will work side by side with communities to build resilient, healthy brains early in life and to develop tools to promote healthy lifestyles and maintain brain health as we age.

The vision of Turner Institute is to become the leading brain and mental health research institution in Asia-Pacific, with a global footprint. Their mission is to work towards a world of mentally healthy communities.
