I want to do an EPQ on adolescent mental illness but I don't know what area to base it on. I have had to take 2 years out due to MH issues and have attempted suicide and been hospitalised etc. so maybe something to do with these experiences? Any help would be much appreciated

An EPQ shouldn't really be the place to discuss your own experiences. But do use them to guide a topic - maybe something like the ethics of holding someone against their will (section) can be discussed in terms of human rights etc.

I did mine on whether or not we've moved to more ethical treatments of mental illness

Ahh, sorry I didn't word it very well. I want to use my own experiences as rationale for the topic rather than to discuss the topic

honestly do whatever you want to do, look up different modules you're doing at uni for ideas. i did mind on serial killers and it was relatively easy

Im currently re-doing my EPQ and one of my original areas of study was suicide, specifically 'Suffering in Silence' with regards to the higher rate of suicides amongst males and the reasons for this. This also relates to personal experience in my family. If you are doing a project of suicide specifically or depression it would be worth researching and mentioning this within your project x

If you are taking Psychology for A level you have to be careful not to do your EPQ on something that you study, as this isn't allowed. A really good suggestion I had was to do my EPQ on another of my interests and link it to Psychology; in the end I looked at how musical training can affect cognitive development. Anything you're passionate about will make the best project, but if you have a personal affliction with something then this could bring up bad memories for you and also be awkward to talk about with your supervisor, so just take that into account!
