What happens with your information?
Your individual results are combined with other participants’ results before they are analysed. Individual participant data is never shared or released. All participants are protected by strict State and Commonwealth privacy laws, with oversight from an independent Ethics Committee.
Confidentialised (meaning unable to be traced back to an individual) findings from the study are entirely public, and shared with policy makers and health professionals to promote and protect the health and wellbeing of Australian men and boys. The media frequently report on our research.
Ten to Men supports important men’s health initiatives such as Movember, and Beyond Blue and the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia. Your participation in Ten to Men research may have helped these causes.
Ten to Men does not directly offer advice or health services. If you have any immediate concerns about your health or mental health – or those of someone else – please contact one of the services on our men’s health services list.
