Telethon Kids Institute and the University of Western Australia are searching for students to participate in a research project that seeks to explore and understand the risk and protective factors of mental health in domestic and international students. This project has UWA Human Research Ethics approval (RA/2022/ET000959).

Part I of the study involves an anonymous online questionnaire which will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete and both domestic and international students aged 18 and above, and studying in tertiary institutions (i.e., universities) in Australia are eligible to participate. Interested participants can leave their e-mail addresses to stand a chance to win one of 5 AUD50 vouchers. Responses to the anonymous online survey will not be linked to their e-mail addresses in any way.
