This chapter describes a large collaborative project based in Melbourne, Australia, between a public agency providing forensic and correctional mental health services and a research and training center at Swinburne University of Technology. There are several aspects of this partnership that make it distinctive. First, the size of the initiative and the number of individuals working on it is striking. Second, the collaboration has grown very substantially but also evolved through various changes in partners, thus illustrating the importance of flexibility and adaptiveness. Third, it is the only example of a collaborative project of the kind discussed in this volume that is based outside of the United States. It clearly illustrates the value that can be provided through such a partnership, and has important implications for similar partnerships on a large scale.
