Ethical Guidance on Research

The CMHDARN Research Ethics Consultation Committee can now offer guidance on research projects on mental health and alcohol and other drugs. The Community Mental Health Drug and Alcohol Research Network (CMHDARN) is a partnership between MHCC, the Network of Alcohol and other Drugs Agencies (NADA) and the Mental Health Commission of NSW.

CMHDARN encourages researchers to participate in a process of peer-review regarding ethical issues to promote ethical conduct in practice-based research. CMHDARN will support community managed mental health and AOD sectors to both implement and demonstrate ethical research in their workplace. The Research Ethics Committee will meet to explore your application, provide feedback, ask questions and make recommendations.
