information for a national study, see details below and if you are able to help click on the link below for more information.

Research Study Details

The study aims to investigate men’s experiences of depression and suicidal behaviour (thoughts, plans, attempts), with a view to discovering factors that contribute to, or interrupt suicidal behaviour, and factors contributing to taking action, or not taking action, during a suicidal crisis.

In each stage and territory, we will be conducting one-on-one interviews in every state and territory with five men over the age of 18, who have made a suicide attempt between 6 and 18 months ago.

In addition, we will also explore through a focus group the views of adult family and friends who have been impacted by depression and suicidal behaviours in a male friend or family member in the same time period.

The focus groups and interviews are designed so that we might learn how to better recognise, interrupt and prevent suicidal behaviour in Australian males.

Applicants are sought from the following regions:

Sydney metro (NSW), Melbourne metro (VIC), Canberra metro (ACT), Adelaide metro (SA), Darwin area (NT), Launceston area (TAS), Cairns area (QLD), Bunbury area (WA).
