The survey

The Digital Peer Support survey (now closed) gathered information about how LGBTQ+ young people support each other and themselves through digital and social media, and ran from mid-August to mid-November, 2020. It served to explore how digital peer support practices relate to mental health and wellbeing. The survey was the first stage of a larger study that aims to inform Australian mental health policy through evidence of LGBTQ+ young people’s mental health experiences and peer support practices.
