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.  We are also always in need of healthy volunteers to act as 'control' participants.

For more information about current projects requiring research,  visit our Clinical Trials page.  

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

  • visiting our research centre based on Level 4, 607 St Kilda Road, Melbourne

  • completing questionnaires or participating in interviews by phone or face-to-face with our trained team of health professionals

  • 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.

If you would like to forward a general expression of interest in participating in any of our research projects, please contact our centre:

our patients regarding their experience during their clinic visits. We have been receiving excellent

reviews from our patients and the feedback from our patients are a testimony of

the warmth, care and comfort offered by our clinical staff to the patients during their visits.

“This has been a really great experience from beginning to end, all the staff and doctors have been so helpful and kind.” 

“I changed my coping mechanisms, like I needed to re-learn everything.”

“The researchers and doctors showed empathy and interest in my condition."

“Depth of knowledge and engagement – fascinating and inspirational”

"A wonderful group of professionals all working collaboratively to achieve the best

outcome for their patients.

"The approach is incredible, the work of the team sheds light on so much that I have been feeling"
