The ATP Generation 3 study

The Year 2012 marked the beginning of a new phase of the ATP, with the launch of the Generation 3 study. Having followed the development and wellbeing of study members since birth, the project is now investigating how the experiences of one generation affect the next, from grandparent (Generation 1) to parent (Generation 2) to child (Generation 3).

The study examines the social and emotional health of parents and their children in late pregnancy, at birth, 8 weeks after birth, 1 and 4 years of age. Participation in each component is voluntary. To learn more about the Gen3 study, please visit the Melbourne Children’s ATP website.

If you are an ATP study member expecting a baby or you have a child up to 18 months of age, please let us know. We would very much like you to be part of this exciting study. You can email us at or update your details here.

The ATP turns 30!

In May 2013, the ATP celebrated its 30th birthday with an afternoon tea for study members and their families at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne.

Approximately 150 people joined in the celebrations, which included the launch of a report highlighting key findings from the first 30 years of the study.

Further details about the party are included in our 2013 newsletter.
