"We are particularly aware of the need for greater access to engaging information in rural or remote areas, and hope that will be a step towards achieving this."

Early in 2017, NeuRA began making knowledge and research more accessible with the launch of the NeuRA Discovery Portal.

The first of the online libraries in the portal is the Schizophrenia Library, which features more than 450 carefully curated pages, with downloadable information sheets for community, and technical sheets for practitioners or specialists.
