Online Studies:

Cross-National LGBT Psychological Wellbeing Study (UK)

Do you identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT), are aged 18+ and currently live in the UK? 

Researchers from the University of Glasgow, in collaboration with colleagues in Belgium and The Netherlands,  are conducting an anonymous online survey aiming to find out more about psychological wellbeing in LGBT individuals, particularly in relation to any thoughts or behaviours around self-harm and suicide.

LGBT individuals have been identified as being at higher risk of experiencing poor mental health, suicidal ideation and engaging in suicidal behaviours than people who are not LGBT. Despite the fact that the LGBT community has been consistently identified as an ‘at risk’ group, there is very little research in this area. 

If you identify as LGBT and would like to take part, or just find out more information, please click the link:

Survey investigating self-harming behaviours amongst university students

Have you supported someone through self-harm?  Or have you had thoughts of/have actively self-harmed?  The HUSSH study wants to hear about your experience.  

We are pleased to invite you to take part in some research being carried out by the University of Westminster.

The aim of this study to explore people’s experiences of self-harm during their time at University, and what support might be helpful for those who have experienced self-harm, either directly or indirectly. We hope our that findings will reduce and prevent self-harm, as well as help to provide support to those who may be supporting someone who is carrying out self-harm.

As part of the research we would like to hear from people with a range of experiences including those who have had thoughts of self-harm whilst at university, but not acted on them, those who have or are currently supporting someone through self-harm, and those who are actively self-harming or have previously self-harmed.
