Monash University’s School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine undertook a national survey on the mental health of people in the first month of COVID-19 restrictions. The first survey was completed by nearly 14,000 people in April 2020.
They are now conducting a second survey to see how people in Australia are experiencing the easing of COVID-19 restrictions and to seek their suggestions about what the government could do to assist recovery. There has never been a more important time to voice your opinion on how these restrictions are impacting you, the people you work with and the community.
If you are over 18 and living in Australia then you are able to complete this survey even if you didn’t complete the first survey offered back in April 2020.

We recommend completing the survey as soon as possible to avoid missing out on the one month time frame. Further information about the project can be found here.
Contribute to research on the psychological & social impact of the Covid-19 pandemic
The aim of this research project being run by the National Ageing Research Institute (NARI) is to explore 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). They want to understand more about the effects of COVID-19 on things such as well-being, mental health, physical health, and use of services.
Participation is open to people over the age of 18 living in Australia. People do not need to be an Australian citizen or permanent resident to complete these surveys. People do not have to be in isolation or quarantine, or diagnosed with COVID-19 to take part.
Researchers in the United Kingdom and the United States of America are also conducting this study. Results will inform the advice given to people, the support needed, & the decisions taken, to keep Australians as well as possible.
