Men, Hearts and Minds

  • Alice Springs NT 0870, Australia

This study has 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. The development phases have been completed, and researchers have conducted a cross-sectional assessment of 189 Aboriginal men in and around Alice Springs. They are currently looking for further funding to explore these links in men experiencing heart attacks.
