Depression is under diagnosed in men. An area of critical research is to better understand the relationship between physical symptoms and mental health in men, and how this may be applied to develop better diagnostic tools. Simon will therefore be exploring the links between lower urinary tract symptoms, that are very common in men, and depression.
Simon will be based at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute.
