Take part in Samaritans research study

TheMixTheMix Posts: 3,040 Boards Guru
Hi everyone,

Samaritans have reached out to us and they are looking for young people who have seen, posted, or engaged with self-harm or suicide content online to take part in a survey. The aim of the study is to help make the internet a safer and more inclusive place.

The questions asked in the survey could be triggering for some people who struggle with self-harm and suicidal feelings so please make sure to complete the survey when you are feeling okay to do so, and do reach out to services such as Crisis Messenger or Samaritans if you need any support after completing the survey.

Here's a bit more information about the survey from Samaritans:
We are currently recruiting participants for a survey examining the impact of viewing and posting online content related to suicide and self-harm. This research is part of the Samaritans Online Excellence Programme and we are working in partnership with Middlesex University, the University of Birmingham, and Canterbury Christ Church University.

The survey is open to people aged 16 and over who currently live in the UK. People can take part in this survey if they have ever seen, posted, or engaged with self-harm or suicide content online. You do not need to have personal experience of self-harm or suicidal feelings to take part in this survey.

The survey is currently live and can be found here along with the Participant Information Sheet: https://mdxl.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_cNFvDsPuHl6rJDU

Thank you <3
