Seeking participants for online study of suicide and the Internet Watch

    • Thread Starter

    You are invited to participate in a study of suicidal Internet users, comparing those who go online for reasons relating to their feelings of suicide to those who do not. We want to find out about the effects of using the Internet for suicidal problems and what stops people from getting help offline. We are seeking British citizens or permanent residents aged 18-24 who have thought about killing themselves or who have deliberately harmed themselves with the intention of resulting in death within the past 12 months. Participants will be required to complete an anonymous online survey of approximately 20-25 minutes. Those who use the internet for their suicidal problems may also complete another section of no more than 30 minutes.
