The Marital and De facto Separation Study

The Marital and De facto Separation Study

Marriage or De Facto separation can be extremely stressful and often causes significant emotional distress. It has also been reported that the separation process plays an important role in the development of suicidal behaviours. However, little is known about what causes the most distress and at what point during the separation process. This information is crucial for the development of appropriate support for people who are going through separation.

The Australian Institute for Suicide Research and Prevention (AISRAP), Griffith University is conducting a study which looks at the impact of separation on men's psychological health and development of suicidal behaviours. AISRAP is currently urgently recruiting people who are going through separation.  AISRAP is looking for men who have experienced a separation in the past 12 months.  Participation involves completing two 30 minutes questionnaires (one now and one in six-months time). An incentive is offered to participants. 

To participate or for more information please contact Naoko Ide at AISRAP, Griffith University on (07) 3735 3338 or
