Online survey for youth mental health service access by Monique Platell (The University of Western Australia)

0 replies

My name is Monique and I am a PhD student at UWA and currently I am undertaking research looking at the barriers for young people accessing mental health services in Perth.

As part of my research I have developed an online survey and we would like to hear from young people aged between 14 and 18 years old living in Perth about the factors that may be discouraging them from accessing mental health services. The survey also asks for participants to give their opinion on what problems they feel mental health professionals are most useful for.

This survey strives to give young people a voice on issues that may be preventing them getting help when they need it most.

The link to the survey is below. Spread the word to anyone you think may be interested in taking part.
