Discover. Prevent. Cure.
We're searching for answers to some of childhood's diseases, conditions and issues. In addition to our four research themes (Indigenous Health, Brain and Behaviour, Chronic and Severe Diseases, Early Environment), you can also discover more about specific research we're involved in and the technology we use.
Discover what drives us as an organisation. Learn about history and the impact of the Institute along with the amazing ambitious goals we've achieved so far in the field of children's research.

Different audiences rely on us for very different things. Whether you're a valued donor, curious professional researcher, inquisitive member of the public, or a corporate supplier looking to offer support - we've collated the resources you need.
This project is an extension of the Supporting Family Conversations Project which has developed resources to support parents of children in Year 7 to reduce the risk of harm to teenagers from alcohol use and in the online environment.
The investigators would like to know what parents of young people in Years 9 and 10 think about alcohol use amongst young people. This information will be used to design resources to help parents keep their children safer around alcohol.
We invite the parents/guardians of a child currently enrolled in either Year 9 or 10 in a Western Australian secondary school to take part in this project.
We invite you to participate in focus groups conducted by the project’s researchers at the Telethon Kids Institute. These focus groups will examine parent’s knowledge, attitudes and behaviours towards adolescent alcohol use; as well as identifying key messages that may inform the future development of resources for parents of Year 9 and 10 students.

This study is being conducted by Telethon Kids Institute in collaboration with School Drug Education Road Aware (SDERA) and Healthway.
