Participants sought: Investigating the link between mental illness and endocrine function
Females aged 18-65 years with no diagnosis of mental illness are invited
to participate as a healthy control group for our study
investigating the link between mental illness and endocrine function.
Identifying and understanding why different medical disorders co-occur
provides important opportunities for prevention and potential treatment
in the future. Participating in this study enables you to contribute to
research aimed at improving treatment options for people with mental
illness, which will translate directly to everyday benefits for these
individuals. This will be a once-off, 2-hour visit. You will complete
questionnaires and undergo a simple, standard physical examination and
blood test. Participation will occur at the Monash Alfred Psychiatry
Research Centre (Level 4, 607 St Kilda Road).
