Hearts and Minds Research
Hearts and Minds was established in 2010 at the Heart Centre for Children. Our program is part of, and supported by, The University of New South Wales and The Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network, including both the Children’s Hospital at Westmead and Sydney Children’s Hospital.
We are Australia’s first comprehensive research program and clinical service dedicated to all psychological aspects of childhood heart disease. Our research spans across all developmental ages and stages, from early life in the womb through to childhood, adolescence & young adulthood, parenthood, and grandparenthood.
We focus on the issues that are important to children and families, understanding the complex challenges posed by childhood heart disease and developing new and better ways of transforming these challenges.
