Do you know about Regional Australia Institute’s new project – Innovation Watch?

Innovation Watch is a national network of regional Australians that have come together to share ideas about successful community-led development.

It is a platform to exchange ideas and learn from the experiences of others about what works in regional development. Discussions focus on practical initiatives that are driven by the local community.

Regional Australia is innovative and thriving. Much of this innovation is driven from within by locals who are passionate about the area, understand the opportunities and can mobilise the wider community. By sharing real success stories we hope to inspire other communities to implement locally-led initiatives in their area.

Join us as we celebrate the success our regional communities have achieved and promote a positive image of regional Australia.

Farmers Needed!

My name is Ashleigh Skinner and I am undertaking a research project as part of a Master of Clinical Psychology postgraduate study requirement at the University of Technology, Sydney.

I am looking at how innate human needs and underlying thoughts and emotions may be related to mental health in Australian farmers. This is an important area of research for our country, particularly in regards to the high rates of suicide amongst farmers.

I would be very grateful if you could spare 20-30 minutes to partake in this short survey.

Please only complete this questionnaire if you are a full-time farmer in Australia, aged 18 years and above.

Participation in this study is completely voluntary and the completed surveys are entirely anonymous. Only my supervisor and I will have access to the results of the survey, but we will not have access to the source of the information (i.e. your name is not required therefore is entirely anonymous and confidential).

If you are willing to become involved in this research please follow the link below which will contain a more detailed information sheet and a questionnaire set.  Please feel free to share these details with other farmers who may like to partake in this study.
