This study spent four years capturing the manifestations and expressions of stress and depression in Aboriginal men in Central Australia, in order to explore the contribution of psychosocial factors to heart disease and its risk factors.
Researchers conducted a cross-sectional assessment of 189 Aboriginal men in and around Alice Springs, in the Northern Territory (NT).
The study was led by Alex Brown at Baker Heart & Diabetes Institute.
