The Men's Anxiety Project
Orygen is partnering with men’s mental health charity Movember to research how young men experience and cope with anxiety, and the role of informal support networks like friends and family. To date, there has been limited research into how young men experience, describe and perceive their anxiety, which may include high levels of stress, nervousness or worry that feels out of control and might also include things like panic attacks, body soreness and headaches.
What does the study involve?
Participants will take part in an audio-recorded interview about their anxiety and how they cope with and manage their anxiety when it arises. The 30-60 minute interviews which will be conducted via Zoom, telephone or another video conference software based on participant preferences.
Participants will be reimbursed $30 for their time via a Mastercard voucher.
To be eligible participants must:
- be aged 15-25;
- identify as male; and
- have been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder or self-report anxiety symptoms.
Participation in the study is voluntary and Orygen researchers will ensure participants have all the information about the study before they provide consent.
If you are interested in participating in the study, please register your interest in completing an interview via our online survey.
