About our study

We are trying to understand why some people experience problems with their mental health. We hope by understanding more about the causes of mental health problems, we can help improve treatments, diagnosis and support in the future.

We need as many people as possible to take part – wherever you live and regardless of whether you’ve ever experienced a mental illness or not.

What will we ask?

We will ask questions about your health and lifestyle, and about yourself, like age and ethnic group. We’ll also ask for your contact details.

How long will it take?

Around 5 minutes to read the consent sheet, and 10-15 minutes to answer the questions.

Who will have access to my data?

Only the study team will have access to your data and only they will contact you directly. All information collected during the course of the research will be kept strictly confidential. There are strict laws that safeguard your privacy at every stage.

In accordance with the Data Protection Act, your personal information will be kept confidential by assigning a unique study code to your data. Your name and identifying information will not be passed on to anyone.

Our privacy policy has more information, and you’re welcome to contact us with any queries.
