What's involved?

The study will involve either an individual interview or a focus group (depending on your preferences and numbers required). 

Individual interviews will take approximately 30-60 minutes. Focus groups will take approximately 60-90 minutes. To thank participants for their time and contribution to the research, each participant will be offered a $40 voucher for participating in an individual interviews and an $80 voucher will be given to participants participating in the focus group as this requires more time from participants. We encourage expressions of interest from people within Auckland and outside of Auckland. 

Eligibility criteria

You may be eligible for this study if you:

  • Have one or more long-term physical health conditions, such as diabetes, cardiovascular or respiratory disease.
  • Have lived experience of depression and/or anxiety.

If you have a long-term condition but do not have lived experience of depression/anxiety but are interested in this project, we still encourage you to express interest.
