Hi Golfers, you probably all know how important playing golf is for your mental health. 

 

I am conducting research as part of my Master of Psychology I am looking at what social and personality factors are associated with depression and would really appreciate your participation in this online survey. *Especially males*

 

The more participants we have the more meaningful the outcome of the research will be!

 

All you need to do is fill out an anonymous online survey that should take approx. 15 minutes. You will then be able to enter a draw to win one of five $50 online vouchers.

 

*The survey can be found here*

The project has been approved by the Australian Catholic University Human Research Ethics Committee. Should you require any further information please contact Dr Hamilton at david.hamilton@acu.edu.au. Anyone over the age of 18 can participate.

MUCH APPRECIATED!

Been there so don't mind doing the survey to put my twist on things.  If you go to page 2 in this thread you will find a title  "Charlotte Dawson" - Dealing With Depression.  Bit of a read but it may also give you an idea of how a forum community thinks and offers support.  Unfortunately, we have lost a few very good ISEEK mates to depression and I'm sure we collectively don't wish to lose any more.

As she said Hack, it doesn't matter how you respond, it is the sum responses of the answers that give the detail required.  Mind you, I was a bit baffled as to how my responses could indicate how depression may be caused.  But I guess that's why I'm not going for a Masters in Clinical Psychology.. :rolleyes:

 I am so sorry that you have lost some of your fellow forum mates to this illness. Although this research wont bring them back, hopefully by better understanding how depression works, and what the risk factors are, we will be better prepared to help people living with depression. Thanks for your feedback and for completing the survey, and i will check out that thread,

You are quite right!!! And truth is, this doesnt really give us answers about what causes depression (that title was more to garner attention and keep things simple)... the results will give an indication of the risk factors of depression. You cant really determine causation via a survey like this!

Psych101,

 

Not sure where you are going with your survey, I filled it in, but I don't have the issues that have cost us a champion bloke.

 

Nevertheless, the results you get from here should be weighted higher than others because you are unlikely to get 45 year old plus punters responding to any survey, its not our go.

Perry Groves! The data from the good people on this forum will add a lot to ensure that the results of my research can be generalised to a wider group of people! You are 100% right re middle aged men being unlikely to fill out psychology student surveys! So the input from you all is very much appreciated! Having a balanced representation of females and males is crucial to ensure meaningful results! So thanks again to you all for taking the time to fill this out.

 

Also, happy to share my findings with whoever is interested. when they are ready. just let me know!

Hey Psych101, I would be keen to find out the results of the survey, when are you going to close the survey off?? I work at the National Ageing Research Institute in Parkville and there are some close parallels with some our projects. You can direct message me through the site or look me up on the NARI website.

 

Cheers,

Scott

I think this 2020 year caused a great depression for everyone. It connects with a quite different way of life with wearing masks, using sanitizers, keeping distance and scaring crowded places. Meeting coughing person makes us scaring and depressive. These all factors are the consequences of the coronavirus disease, which get improving our lives every day

Happy to help. I believe that good karma exists, and I definitely know how stressful it can be the process of conducting a survey if you can’t reach enough respondents. This topic is really interesting for me as I wish to pursue a career in psychology, mainly because of my past experience with depression. A few years ago, I was in a really dark place. I was feeling very lonely, and ultimately ended up with major depression. What made on impact on my mental health is the advice and information I got from https://lifestance.c...lity-disorders/. This online platform helped me overcome my issues and made me appreciate what I have and what I am for my true self.

Where can I find some more feedback?
