Take part in our study investigating the impact of life experiences on mental wellbeing
Adults with anxiety or depression and adults without mental health problems are needed for a new online psychology research project.
Trauma has long been linked to mental health problems. Our research study is looking into the impact of life experiences such as traumatic events on our mental wellbeing. The aim is to better understand what factors may underpin this link which is important for developing and improving treatments.
Who can take part
We are looking for adult (over 18) volunteers:
- who are not experiencing mental health problems
- or who experience anxiety and/or depression but not OCD
You do not need to have experienced a traumatic event to take part.
Responses will be collected until March 2019.
What you'll get
Unfortunately, we are not able to pay you for taking part. However, as a thank you for your time, a donation will be made on your behalf to a charity. You can choose from the following charities: Mind, Samaritans, NSPCC, Cancer Research UK, or St Mungo's.
You will be required to complete an anonymous online questionnaire. This will take approximately 30 – 40 minutes and your responses are anonymous.
All information and data provided will remain strictly confidential and all reports will be anonymised.*
