Impact of the residential greenspace on the mental health of the Australian women.


This project will examine the effects of neighborhood greenspace on the mental health of Australian women. Research on greenspace and mental health has been driven by an emerging interest in the last decade. However, most of the evidence came from cross-sectional studies. Moreover, several studies used historical environmental exposure data, which are not always spatially and temporally well-aligned with a participant’s residential address(es). ALSWH has mental health data collected by regular surveys as well as geocoded residential addresses. These data will allow investigation of the longitudinal association between spatially and temporally aligned residential greenspace and mental health in a large, national cohort of Australian women.
