Participate in a Research Study

MAPrc researchers regularly seek people who have experience with mental illness, as well as those who do not, for participation in research projects and treatment trials. 

See our Treatment Trials page for information about current projects requiring research. We are also always in need of healthy volunteers to act as 'control' participants. For more information see the MAPrc recruitment drive flyer below.

What is involved in participation will depend on what the research project is, but may include:

  • visiting MAPrc at our research centre based on Level 4, 607 St Kilda Road, Melbourne
  • having a researcher visit at hospital or at home
  • completing questionnaires or participating in interviews by phone or face-to-face
  • researchers speaking with doctors or case managers
  • trying a new treatment, either instead of, or in addition to, current treatment. Treatments might be:
    • brain stimulation
    • medication
    • hormone treatments
    • psychological therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).

Any personal information provided and the record of participation are treated as private health information and kept confidential.

All MAPrc studies have been approved, and are governed by, the Alfred Hospital Ethics Committee.
