The 2016-2017 Hazelwood Health Study Adult Survey collected information on the health and wellbeing of residents, including mental health, 2.5 years after the 2014 Hazelwood mine fire. One of the primary research questions of the Hazelwood Health Study was to monitor levels of psychological distress within the Morwell community over time. To do this, Morwell residents who participated in the 2016-2017 Adult Survey (round 1 survey) were invited to again participate in the 2019-2020 Mental Health and Wellbeing Follow-up Survey (round 2 survey).
