My name is Ashleigh Skinner and I am undertaking a research project as part of a Master of Clinical Psychology postgraduate study requirement at the University of Technology, Sydney.
I am looking at how innate human needs and underlying thoughts and emotions may be related to mental health in Australian farmers. This is an important area of research for our country, particularly in regards to the high rates of suicide amongst farmers.
I would be very grateful if you could spare 20-30 minutes to partake in this short survey.
Please only complete this questionnaire if you are a full-time farmer in Australia, aged 18 years and above.
Participation in this study is completely voluntary and the completed surveys are entirely anonymous. Only my supervisor and I will have access to the results of the survey, but we will not have access to the source of the information (i.e. your name is not required therefore is entirely anonymous and confidential).
If you are willing to become involved in this research please follow the link below which will contain a more detailed information sheet and a questionnaire set. Please feel free to share these details with other farmers who may like to partake in this study.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me via email at Ashleigh.M.Skinner@student.uts.edu.au.
