New survey launched - how has COVID impacted men?

The Australian Men’s Health Forum recently held a series of focus groups with practitioners and volunteers who work directly with men, to help us understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the mental health and wellbeing of men and boys.

If you missed out on these focus groups and still want to share your experiences of working with men and boys throughout the pandemic, you can contribute to this research by taking part in our online survey.

We’re keen to hear your insights on the different ways men and boys have coped with the uncertainty of the past two years, particularly in relation to their mental health.

Due to the focus of the work we especially interested to hear from groups and individuals working with dads, younger men and older men. However, anyone working with men who has insights to share about the impacts of the pandemic on men’s mental health is welcome to participate.

The survey only takes a few minutes to complete, so if you work with men and have something to say about men's experiences during the pandemic, please complete our online survey today.

Men can share their stories too

In addition, for men who want to share their own personal stories of coping through the pandemic, there's an opportunity to take part in an anonymous online survey.

We invite men of all backgrounds (18 years and older) to share their experiences of the pandemic, and impacts on their mental health. In particular, we’d like to hear from men who are fathers and/or family providers.

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.

For more information on how men can share their stories see our article: "Men, has the pandemic impacted your mental health?"

Both pieces of research are 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 completed by the end of June 2022.
