Thank you for participating in this anonymous survey.  It follows conversations in the SANE peer support forums where members have expressed their concern that the impact of mental illness on sex and physical intimacy is not sufficiently well understood or acknowledged. 

What is this survey?
This survey gives voice to the experiences of people dealing with these issues.  It will increase our understanding of the help and support that is needed.

We welcome responses from people with a mental illness, their partners and carers and have designed the survey to capture each point of view. 

How long will it take?
It will take around 10 minutes to complete.

If you feel distressed while completing this survey, don't hesitate to stop and contact the SANE Help Centre on 1800 18 7263 during business hours.  If you need immediate support outside of these hours please call Lifeline on 13 11 14.

We greatly appreciate your time and responses.
