Benefit-finding and quality of life in younger stroke survivors

Hello young stroke survivors,

Researchers at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health would love to hear about your experience of finding the silver lining after stroke.

In our study, we are exploring people's experience of benefit-finding (aka. finding a silver lining) and its relationship with quality of life after stroke.

To participate in this study, you need to:

  • Be 18–65 years of age;
  • Have had a stroke at least 6 months ago;
  • Be able to understand and respond to written and/or verbal English;
  • Can complete online surveys in English (with or without help from someone).

The study involves completing a 20–30 minute online survey. The survey and more information about the study is available at

After completing the online survey, you will be invited to participate in a 45–60-minute interview over Zoom/Skype, or by telephone. You can choose to do just the survey, or survey and interview.


If you have any questions or require further information, please contact Mr Jason Yeung via email: or Dr Karen Borschmann
