University of Wollongong Missing Persons Study
Around 35,000 people are reported missing in Australia each year.
For every person that goes missing up to 12 other people are affected. The psychological impact on those left behind can be profound.
Researchers from the School of Psychology at the University of Wollongong are seeking participants to help them explore the emotional processes people go through when a loved one is missing. This research is crucial for gaining insight into how the best possible support might be provided to those left behind.
The research team is seeking Australian participants who are 18 years or older for involvement in an online survey. If you have a loved one who is missing and are open to sharing your experience you are invited to take part. All your personal details will be kept confidential, including the details of the person who is missing.
