CSART a foundational partner in the $12.8M endeavor to harness systems modeling to strengthen youth mental health systems in Australia

Right care, first time, where you live Program

CSART is proud to be a foundational partner of the Right care, first time, where you live Program – a $12.8M investment of the BHP Foundation to the University of Sydney’s Brain and Mind Centre.

The Right Care, first time, where you live Program brings an evidence-based discipline to investments in Australia’s youth mental health systems that will provide young people with timely access to the right level of care, delivered early in the course of illness, and for a sufficiently long-period, to ensure that they thrive economically and socially.

The goal of this Program is to ensure more young people get back on a positive developmental trajectory towards enhanced social, educational and vocational functioning – back to school, back to work and thriving in their communities. In collaboration with local communities and their relevant health agencies, the Program is co-developing and delivering decision-support tools in eight regions across urban, regional and rural Australia. The Program harnesses tools such as systems modelling, simulation and digital technologies.

CSART ( is a not-for-profit organisation working to build global capacity in the use of computer simulation and advanced research technologies to support policy and planning decisions that address society’s most complex, persistent health and social problems. CSART works at the intersection of a number of science streams – computer, data, systems, health and behavioural, citizen – to offer better analytic tools into the hands of decision makers. CSART and its partners work to create the necessary workforce, technological, and systems infrastructure to make these advanced decision tools more broadly available and more routinely used.
