Men, hearts and minds

 

Overview

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). Further funding is currently being sought to explore links in men experiencing heart attacks.

The study was led by Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute.
