Under Review: - 2 manuscripts have been going through revise and re-submission processes (1 has been held up by a journal for >12mths but hopefully close to acceptance; the other pending minor revisions)
Additional data collection
Originally, this was going to be a survey completed over 4-time points during a 12-month period. Given the ongoing impacts of the pandemic, the Australian team are planning to complete another survey around the 18-month and 24-month time-points to continue to explore the mental health impacts over time.
