Participating families receive real benefits through ORIGINS
Being a part of The ORIGINS Project, not only supports global research and the health of future generations, but also provides many benefits for participant families.
Real-time feedback is incorporated into The ORIGINS Project which is helping to identify health issues among participant babies and toddlers, including delayed speech and physical development, and severe allergies, as well as anxiety and depression in mums, leading to referral to specialists and enabling early intervention.
Participant families are privy to any results that are found through ORIGINS assessments so they can then be addressed as soon as possible.
The ORIGINS Community
With more than 4,000 families involved in ORIGINS to date, the project has developed its own small 'community' within the community of the Joondalup/Wanneroo area.
Participants have access to a private Facebook page that gives members the opportunity to share parenting tips and information, as well as discuss family resources in the local area.
Social and educational activities are organised by ORIGINS, where families can get together and have some fun, or learn about developments in health research.
Coffee & Connect events, held regularly, give ORIGINS families a chance to connect with each other, as well with a child health nurse and ORIGINS staff, at an informal morning tea.
