From Emily Cooney (PhD), Senior Lecturer, Otago Medical School

Emily Cooney (PhD), Senior Lecturer at Otago Medical School, is part of a group conducting research on family violence and suicidality. The researchers have provisional ethics approval and are now looking for NZ-based participants who fall into one or more of these groups:

  • men aged 18 years or older, who have used violence towards a partner or family member and have also been suicidal
  • adults who have survived family violence from a suicidal partner or family member
  • rangatahi aged between 16 and 25 years, who have experienced both suicidal urges, and physical or sexual abuse or violence from a family member or partner

The researchers are happy to come and visit, or Zoom with you to provide more context and information about the study. Participants will be contributing to understanding and awareness about two problems that cause a huge amount of suffering in our country, and they will be remunerated for their time.
