Thinking about mental illness

Have you been diagnosed with a mental illness?  Or are you interested in how people develop a mental illness? If you so, we would like your help to evaluate a new way of thinking about a mental illness.

Participation involves completing some questionnaires, watching a brief YouTube video about a new way of thinking about how mental illness develops and answering a few questions about your thoughts about the video.

It should take about 20 minutes to complete.

Eligibility

Anyone aged 18 years or older can participate.

Purpose of the study

The purpose of the project is to evaluate a new way of thinking about mental illness. We would like to get the perspectives of people with and without a current mental illness.

What the research involves

If you decide to participate, you will be asked to

  • complete some questions regarding demographics (eg age, relationship status), wellbeing (eg have you felt cheerful and in good spirits?) and coping (eg when you feel distressed, do you meditate?)
  • watch a brief YouTube video detailing a new way of thinking about how mental illness can develop and share your thoughts about the video.

Participation will take 20 minutes and will be done online. The information you provide will be collected and stored anonymously.
