Mental health conditions are common, with one in five Australians experiencing a mental health condition in their lifetime. However, few Australians access services and treatments that could help them with their mental health. Are Australians failing to recognise mental health symptoms? Are they unable or unwilling to access appropriate services?
The Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) and its research partners at the Australian Catholic University (ACU) are conducting a survey to find out more about Australians’ Mental Health Literacy. This research will assist in understanding how much Australians know about mental health conditions and provide insight into what needs to be done to improve services.
The RFDS and ACU want to hear from people who live in all areas of Australia, including major cities, inner and outer regional areas, and remote and very remote areas.

Survey participants will have the chance to win 1 of 5 $100 vouchers.
