The Project Researching the Impact of Separated and Missing Family (PRISM Family) seeks to understand how having a family member missing has affected the health and well-being of people living in Australia who have been forcibly displaced. The study is a collaboration between the Refugee Trauma and Recovery Programme at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, the Australian Red Cross and the International Committee of the Red Cross. PRISM Family is a longitudinal study combined with qualitative research that tracks people who have a loved one missing over three years and measures how their experiences change over time as they reach milestones in their search for their missing loved ones. The initial findings will be available from 2024. To find out more, visit here.
