Mental Health in Climate Change Transdisciplinary Research Network

Welcome to the page of UQ's Mental Health in Climate Change Transdisciplinary Research Network (MHCC-TRN).

Our network was established in late 2019

  • to provide much needed evidence base which will support government and industry partners in the development of interventions, tools, and policies 
  • to coordinate and expand research activities with university and industry/government /community partners
  • to harness transdisciplinary expertise for greater innovation and impact
  • to bring together a critical mass of research within this growing area of concern

Our experts are from diverse discipline areas including psychology, environmental sciences, urban planning, social science, economics, mental health, and public health.

We partner with industry, government and community partners to define the problems, identify evidence gaps, offer opportunities for higher degree research students, and propose new research targeted at improving mental health impacted by climate change.

The gained knowledge will inform service planning and targeted strategies that will support people's social and emotional wellbeing as we adapt to climate change. 



  • Supporting Members with developing new knowledge about the mental health aspects in climate change
  • Fostering Collaboration between research groups, government agencies, community organisations, and industry partners
  • Assisting Members as they position themselves for strategic funding and investment opportunities
