Mental Health Research Plan is Supported by Australian Rotary Health


The Australian Rotary Health is supporting involvement in research investigating obstacles to help-seeking for people who have mental illness or emotional difficulties. The research will be conducted by Peter Lindsay, mature age student and a Rotarian in the Master of Psychology (Clinical) Plan under the supervision, at Bond University.

Rotary Club of Narrabri President, Mr Bruce Pyke, is motivating all Rotarians, their loved ones and members of the Narrabri community to get on board with this particular research with a focus throughout the week of 13 to 20 October 2014: “we must know the best way to motivate individuals to get help with mental illness. That is research that is crucial and that I support everyone across the city to complete this survey. It takes only a bit of time”. We are aware that services aren’t accessed by many people who have symptoms.

This may be for various reasons including understandings of demand, structural obstacles like access to suitable services, community approaches as well as other variables that are personal. The implications of not seeking help when it’s desired could be potentially devastating for the people involved. The research workers are eager for the emotionally well and those with symptoms or a mental illness to participate to be able to develop an understanding of the effects.

Participants must be 18 years old or older. Involvement is anonymous and voluntary
