190831: NDIS and Carers Research – closing 31st August

The experience of carers is often overlooked, and rural carers may experience particular challenges in their efforts to care for their loved one. This research will provide much needed insight and understanding of the particular experience rural carers have and will contribute to the body of literature in this area.

I am specifically hoping to reach carers in rural QLD communities who are caring for someone with a mental health condition/psychosocial disability, and who may be under the NDIS, considering the NDIS, not wanting to join the NDIS, or have been deemed ineligible.

The project involves a 1-hour interview via teleconference at the carer’s convenience and is conducted as part of a Masters thesis for a Clinical Psychology student at the University of Southern Queensland in Toowoomba.

To participate: contact the Principal Investigator, Tina Blizzard, via email: Tina.Blizzard@usq.edu.au, or call 0417 176 947.
