Mental ill health and disability among young adults
A fully funded PhD scholarship is available to analyse the Australian National Survey of Health and Wellbeing to explore aspects of service use, disability and chronicity of mental ill health in young adults
The PhD will be centred around analysis of the individual data of young adults from the 2007 Australian National Survey of Health and Wellbeing to evaluate the levels of disability associated with different types of mental ill health, the effect of comorbidity, health service use, social support and other potential determinants. We would hope to look at the complex interplay of education, work and economics. During the course of the PhD the second wave of data will become available which will enable evaluation of the course of these disorders.
Much of the PhD will involve multivariate logistic modelling of these outcomes and training will be provided in this area as well as expertise in epidemiology for health policy relevant areas. There is the opportunity to use multilevel modelling to evaluate differential effects of person and area level factors.
