Calling Growing Minds Practitioners – Mental Health Literacy Validation Survey

Dr Emma Austen at University of Melbourne is seeking feedback from mental health clinicians with expertise in child mental health.


To support new programs looking to enhance adults’ knowledge of child mental health, our team is in the process of developing and validating a new measure of adults’ mental health literacy for supporting children. This measure will assess adults’ knowledge of mental health problems in children, including their ability to recognise signs of mental health problems in children, and identify appropriate support strategies.

As part of this project, we need feedback from mental health clinicians who work with primary school aged children (5 to 12 years) on the case studies we have included as part of this measure – the purpose of this is to validate the intended symptom severity portrayed in the case studies. 

If you are a clinician who works with children in this age range, we would really appreciate your feedback! You can provide your input by completing the Qualtrics survey linked below. The survey will take a maximum of 20 minutes. The full study details are available at this link:



We would also really appreciate if you could forward these details onto any other clinicians in your networks who work with children in this age range. 

Contact details are in the survey link, or you can always get in touch with us at growing-minds-australia@sydney.com.au.
