Are you a parent, guardian or carer of primary aged children (5-12 years old)?
You are invited to take part in a project being conducted by the research team at the Centre for Mental Health, University of Melbourne, in partnership with Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Australia.
The research aims to understand what adults know and want to learn about childhood mental health problems. The research team are asking for participants to complete a one-off survey that takes about 15 – 20 minutes. The information you provide in the survey will help them decide if a Mental Health First Aid course for primary school aged children is needed. It will also help them to know how to develop one in the future.
