Seeking LGBTIQ youth for online survey - ends July 31

YAWCRCsurvey
25 or under? Queer? Got something to say about mental health help-seeking? We want to hear from you!

This online survey on LGBTIQ youth mental health help-seeking is part of a research  study run by Young and Well CRC, Freedom Centre, Twenty10, Curtin University and the University of Western Sydney.

The researchers are seeking participants aged 16-25 years who are sex and gender diverse, sexuality diverse, LGBTIQ, or questioning their gender and/or sexuality. The survey will ask you about your experiences and concerns with seeking help for mental health issues, and about the experiences of your friends.

It will take about 15-20 minutes to complete, and your anonymity and confidentiality will be ensured. Your feedback will be used to develop an e-tool that supports young people’s management of their mental health and well-being.

Take part HERE. We encourage you to share the survey link around your networks, and with other people who you know would also be eligible to participate!
