[Australia] - Last Chance to Participate in this Important Study - ACHESS - The Australian Study of Child Health In Same-Sex Families

Research into the health and wellbeing of GLBTI parented families in Australia is so damn important and I urge every Australian GLBTI parent to read this and share this widely.

This is your last chance to take part in the Australian Study of Child Health in Same-Sex Families. There has been a fantastic response already but by getting as many people as possible to take part the results will provide the most comprehensive understanding of children with same-sex attracted parents. If you have thought about completing the survey and not got round to it, or if this is the first you have heard about the research, send Simon an email. Recruitment will close at the end of November.  I know Dr Simon Crouch well and he is an amazingly committed individual who I have the utmost respect for.  Please help if you can by completing the survey.

A bit about the study from Dr Simon Crouch:

If you identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or same-sex attracted, live in Australia and have children under the age of 18 years we would love to hear from you.

The Australian Study of Child Health in Same Sex Families (ACHESS) is part of the Jack Brockhoff Child Health and Wellbeing Program at the University of Melbourne. In 2012 we are looking to recruit same-sex attracted parents as it is time to find out how their children are doing and in what ways we can help them improve their health outcomes.

It doesn’t matter if you are single or in a relationship, or who your children live with most of the time. All we ask is that you are over 18 and that only one parent for each child completes our questionnaire.

If you are interested in taking part please contact Dr Simon Crouch at the Jack Brockhoff Child Health and Wellbeing Program:
