The Hocking Fellowship Program, comprised of the Hocking Fellowship and Hocking Community Award, was established in honour of the late Barbara Hocking OAM (Executive Director of SANE Australia 1995–2012), who worked tirelessly to improve the wellbeing of Australians living with complex mental health issues.

  • Stigma reduction
  • Digital mental health

  • Innovative, evidence-based approaches to managing mental health and wellbeing
  • Trauma and mental illness
