Study on Young People & Friendship: How Important Are Best Friends For Young People's Health?

Are you between 18 and 29 years? How many BFF's do you have? How important are they to you? What secrets do you share with them? Tell us your story and make a difference!
La Trobe University wants to find out more about the importance of friendship networks for young people's social lives and wellbeing. We launched an online survey asking people between 18 and 29 years of age about their closest friendships and best mates. It will only take you between 10 and 15 minutes to participate, the survey is completely anonymous and your responses are confidential. This survey is important because it helps us to understand how friendships impact on young people's wellbeing. But most importantly it is fun, because it is about you and your friends.
