Men, has the pandemic impacted your mental health?

The Australian Men’s Health Forum (AMHF) is undertaking research on the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the mental health and wellbeing of men and boys in Australia.

As part of this project, AMHF is inviting Aussie men to share their experiences of living through the pandemic, with researchers at Western Sydney University (WSU).

We’re keen to hear from men of all backgrounds (18 years and older) about the impact that the pandemic has had on men, particularly in relation to their mental health. In particular, we’d like to hear from men who are fathers and/or family providers.

The research is being led by Dr Neil Hall at WSU and involves an online survey and online interviews. Men can take part in the anonymous online survey today by following this link:

Everyone who completes the survey and provides their contact details will have the opportunity to receive one of four $50 gift vouchers as a random prize draw.

The research is part of a project funded by the National Mental Health Commission that focuses on a number of priority populations including men and is due to be complete by the end of June 2022.

Earlier this year, AMHF conducted a series of online focus groups with practitioners and volunteers who work directly with men.
