Are you aged 18 or older?
Do you live in Australia?
We want to hear from you in our weekly 15-30 minute survey!
We want you to help us find out how the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) is affecting people living in Australia, including how people are experiencing the restrictions that are in place (such as isolation and physical/social distancing). We want to understand more about the effects of COVID-19 on things such as well-being, mental health, physical health, and use of services.
Why are we conducting this research?
We don’t know how COVID-19 will affect people's wellbeing, including mental health and social functioning over time. We also want to find out if some people are more affected than others and why. By asking people about their experiences over time we can start to understand the long term implications.
This study is also being run in the UK and USA, so we can get a picture of what is happening internationally.
Your participation will help us to inform guidance and decisions on COVID-19, in Australia and overseas.
What we are asking you to do
We will ask you to complete a survey. The survey will take approximately 20-30 minutes.
We will then send you a shorter survey every week while the pandemic lasts. These surveys will take approximately 15-25 minutes.
You will be asked questions about yourself, and things like your general well-being, mental and physical health, what activities you are doing, whether you are isolating and what services you are using.
We will not report or publish anything that identifies you.
This research project has been approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee of The University of Melbourne.
Am I eligible to take part?
If you are 18 years or over and currently live in Australia then you can take part.
How do I sign up?
You can complete the weekly surveys online or via pen-and-paper. The pen-and-paper ones can be sent and returned by mail (we will provide self-addressed stamped envelopes) or can be done over the phone, or in person if necessary, when restrictions lift.
