Carers Victoria Research of Victorian Carers of LGBTIQ People

Carers Victoria are working in partnership with RMIT to undertake research to investigate the experiences of Victorian carers of LGBTIQ people living with mental illness or who have experienced a mental health crisis.

Carers are eligible to participate if they are;

  • over 18 years of age
  • have been or currently in a caring role since the 2014 Victorian Mental Health Act was implemented
  • and the person/people they supported are LGBTIQ

Please share this information with colleagues and carers to inform them of the opportunity to participate in this important research.

The online survey opens on Wednesday 21 June and closes on Friday 4 August.

Please find the survey here.

The aim of this study is to ascertain what is and isn’t helpful and to learn from carer experiences.  By participating in the online survey consent is provided for the survey responses to be used for research purposes by RMIT University and Carers Victoria. The survey will take 20 to 30 minutes to complete.

Findings from this research may be used in future publications and presentations. These will be available via the Carers Victoria website.
