Addressing early declines in wellbeing has been shown to avoid longer term problems and stop symptoms from getting worse.

Prevention is better than cure. And proactive wellbeing care has never been more important.

Make your wellbeing a priority with EMERALD.

EMERALD is developed and delivered by experts at USC’s Thompson Institute, a world-class hub for neuroscience research, teaching and clinical services.

We’re a caring, professional team dedicated to using the latest science to improve wellbeing in individuals and communities.

Who EMERALD is for

Have you recently started feeling a little flat or 'not quite yourself' in your reactions, feelings or behaviours? Research shows it's beneficial to make small but positive changes now.

EMERALD is designed for adults aged 18 years and over who want to learn strategies to proactively support their wellbeing.

EMERALD is free of charge to the community thanks to The Wilson Foundation and the Australian Government's Black Summer Bushfire Recovery Grants Program.

It is also available to employees of participating organisations.
