A psychology student is looking for farmers to undertake a survey as part of her research into mental health in Australian farmers.
Ashleigh Skinner is undertaking a research project as part of a Master of Clinical Psychology postgraduate study requirement at the University of Technology, Sydney.
She is seeking participants to take part in a study investigating how human needs and underlying thoughts, beliefs and emotions may be related to mental health in Australian farmers.
Ms Skinner said her work was an important area of research for Australia, particularly in regards to the high rates of suicide among farmers.
She is seeking full-time farmers in Australia, aged 18 years and older, to complete the online survey, which should take 20-30 minutes.
Participation in this study is completely voluntary and the completed surveys are anonymous. A name is not required when completing the survey.
Only Ms Skinner and her supervisor will have access to the results of the survey, but will not have access to the source of the information.
Anyone who is willing to become involved in this research can follow this link, which contains a more detailed information sheet and a questionnaire set.
