Stress and Wellbeing in Australia

In 2015, for the fifth successive year, the APS will conduct the national Stress and Wellbeing in Australia survey. As well as measuring Australians' level of stress and wellbeing, this year's survey will explore the impact of social media on our wellbeing and behaviour.

In particular, the survey will examine how entrenched use of social media is in our lives and to what extent we experience FOMO (Fear of Missing Out). Can Australians switch off from social media without experiencing anxiety? Is staying constantly connected a benefit or a burden? As well as identifying the ways social media is shaping how we behave and relate.

The results will be released during Psychology Week 2015, from 8th-14th November.
