The NSW Health Drug and Alcohol Research Grants Program is administered through the Mental Health & Drug and Alcohol Office. Each year a small number of research grants are allocated to contribute towards improving evidence based practice in drug and alcohol services and programs in NSW.

Applications are invited from researchers and clinicians working in the drug and alcohol field in the following four priority areas of investigation:

1. Workforce planning and development;

    I am a PhD student under Professor Sharon Dawe who runs the Parents under Pressure (PuP) program. The PuP program aims to help parents who are experiencing high levels of stress when raising their children. One related stressor is substance abuse. At present the program is designed to assist children from 3-8 years. There is growing evidence to improve child outcomes in the long term, these families need assistance earlier. Funding is required to gain the data to develop an appropriate evidence based program for families with younger children. Please contact me regarding an expression of interest.
