Project leadership

For the first time, a nationwide research project will investigate the mental health and wellbeing of Australia’s emergency service staff and volunteers. This new project, led by beyondblue in collaboration with the CRC, will invite up to 20,000 current and former personnel from 35 police and emergency organisations across Australia to participate in a survey about their mental health and risk of suicide.

This project will provide important information to understand both the number of people affected and the range of issues they face.
