Hello everyone,

We have another research opportunity you can take part in with University College London and you'll be given a £20 voucher for taking part :)

About this Study
Primary care professionals like GPs are seeing more young people with symptoms of anxiety and depression and there is growing concern about the impacts of social media on young adult’s mental health. We are interested in interviewing young adults (18-25) to understand the impact of social media on mental health, why young adults with anxiety and depression may or may not ask for help from primary care professionals like GPs and nurses about social media and what kinds of support are received.

What the study involves?
- 30-45 minute online call
- Anything you say will be kept anonymous

You can take part if you:
- Are aged 18-25
- Have experienced depression or anxiety
- Speak English
- Some experience of social media (e.g. WhatsApp, TikTok, Snapchat)
- Live in the UK

Interested in taking part or have any questions?
Email ruth.plackett.15@ucl.ac.uk to take part and also if you have any questions about the research study.

We have also attached a poster with more information about the study :)
We're @Aife, @Ella, @Gemma, and @JustV - the staff team here at The Mix.

Our DMs are monitored Monday - Friday (10am - 5pm) with limited cover on weekends. We have a great team of moderators looking after the community outside of those hours to check in on any reported posts.

We're not able to provide support on this account. If you need support urgently for any reason, please call 999, go to your nearest A&E or contact Crisis Messenger by texting THEMIX to 85258.
