Mr Carl Moller
Mr Carl Moller of the University of Melbourne was awarded $105,000 for their proposed PhD Scholarship thesis titled:
Characteristics and Longitudinal Predictors of Suicidality in Young People with Depression.
This Scholarship is sponsored by Anytime Fitness.
The project will explore depression which is known to be associated with suicide. However, predicting with any degree of certainty whether a particular individual with depression will experience suicidal thoughts or engage in suicidal behaviour is difficult. This poor predictive ability means that it is important to improve our understanding of what specific characteristics of depressed young people are associated with suicidal behaviour.
