Australian Rotary Research Fund
ConNetica has been and continues to be engaged by Rotary to evaluate national community mental health initiatives that Rotary has and is now conducting across Australia. These evaluations have included online and hard copy surveys targeting participants and Rotary staff who have convened and facilitated the sessions and follow up surveys with participants to determine resulting outcomes. To date, over 600 evaluations have been collated and analysed.
These evaluations have provided the evidence to demonstrate that these community initiatives have enhanced community understanding and acceptance of issues relating to mental health and that participants have developed skills to better support individuals who have a mental illness.
