The aim of this research is to explore a range of health practitioners’ attitudes towards the helpfulness of interventions for depression.

Participation is sought from General Practitioners, psychiatrists, occupational therapists, social workers, and psychologists.

Data collected will be presented in  Georgia Nicoll’s Masters dissertation, towards the Master of Clinical Psychology (Charles Sturt University).

Analysis will explore whether differences in attitudes regarding the helpfulness of interventions will exist amongst different health professions, and whether length of practice of the profession impacts attitudes.

Participation is through an anonymous online survey, and is anticipated to take approximately 15 minutes.

If you would like any further information about the study, or a copy of the Research Project Information Sheet, contact Georgia Nicoll on 0408 193 732, or grnicoll@gmail.com.
