In addition to the annual contribution to Orygen’s operations, the Colonial Foundation was pleased to be able to fund $5 million towards the redevelopment of a new purpose-built building at Orygen’s Parkville campus. The new building was successfully completed in December 2018 and now houses Orygen”s operations in Parkville, Victoria.The new facility is a true reflection of Orygen’s leading role in youth mental health and incorporates their values from the ground up. It is a building that was not only designed by young people for young people but was also built by young people – with apprentices having made up more than 10% of the construction workforce.The long-awaited redevelopment has transformed the way Orygen works and houses their clinical, research, policy and education and training services all under one roof. This new world-class facility supports Orygen in integrating their innovative clinical care and translational research activities.
