How you can help
Our Turn to Speak is a national survey that seeks to understand the life experiences of people living with severe and complex mental health issues such as: schizophrenia spectrum disorders, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, OCD, PTSD, dissociative disorders, eating disorders, and severe and treatment-resistant depression and anxiety.
This is the largest survey of its kind ever conducted in Australia and the findings will provide the means for evidence-based advocacy towards policy, resourcing and programs at local, regional and national levels.
By sharing the survey with eligible participants, you will help ensure we reach our goal of 7,000 respondents in a survey sample that reflects the diversity of the Australian population.
The survey will remain open until March 2020, or until we reach our goal.
We have prepared a number of tools and resources to help you share the survey with your community, and help contribute to this important research.Download the Supporter Kit
Why you should Encourage people to participate
SANE’s ultimate goal is to make a real difference in the lives of people affected by complex mental health issues through support, research and advocacy.
Through the Our Turn to Speak survey, we hope to develop a clearer understanding of where policy change and cultural shifts are needed most. The results will inform our advocacy priorities, and guide our policy positions and advocacy to support SANE’s mission
There may also be opportunities to collaborate on the future advocacy activities that arise from the survey’s findings.
Our Turn to Speak is part of a broader program of research. Find out more about how Our Turn to Speak fits into the bigger picture on the SANE website.
