Share your caregiving wisdom
Researchers at the University of Sydney want to find out what strategies parents use to support young people who experience mental health problems, and which they find most helpful. Your experience can help support other parents.
If you are, or have been, a parent or guardian of a young person aged 15-24 who has experienced mental health problems, you are invited to complete an anonymous online survey. This survey should take around 30-45 minutes.
As a token of our appreciation, you can go into a draw to win a $100 gift voucher of your choice.
(We will give 1 gift card per 25 respondents. The email address you can provide for this draw is not linked to your survey answers.)

University of Sydney wants to learn from you!
Over and over again we hear that HOPE is one of the most important things for mental health recovery – but what experiences or situations give people hope? If you are on your own mental health recovery journey and you are over 18 years of age, we would love you to help us better understand HOPE. We are researchers at the University of Sydney and we would like to invite you to share just one moment or experience that ‘ignited’ your HOPE for recovery.
This study will help other consumers and people working to support them in their recovery to better understand what helps people to find and hold on to hope.
To find out more about the study and to share your experience of a thing, a situation or a person that made you feel hopeful about your own recovery, please go to this link: https://redcap.sydney.edu.au/surveys/index.php?s=JRR7Y8XM4R
It will take between 10 and 30 minutes depending on how much you have to say! If you have any questions, please contact Nicola Hancock on 02 9351 9379 or email@example.com
People will have the opportunity at the end of the survey to go into the draw for one of 10 x $50 vouchers as a sign of appreciation for the efforts you have made to taking the time to tell us about your experiences in this study.
