The Centre for Positive Psychology (CPP) is Australia’s leading research centre in positive psychology and is part of the Melbourne Graduate School of Education at the University of Melbourne.


Our purpose at CPP is to build and use the science of wellbeing to help individuals flourish and create thriving communities. We realise this purpose by using new approaches in our work with communities, which involve building learning capabilities and adopting a strengths-based lens. We have a special focus on working with young people to equip and empower them to become positive change agents.
