Two surveys on mental health

23/03/16 . Partners

The University College London Medical School are running two important mental health surveys

One is on thinking related to suicide, the other on your preferences when dealing with mental health. Can you help? Each survey takes about 20 minutes.

They've asked us to post the following:

Survey on types of thinking related to feeling suicidal.

It is normal for people to feel down from time to time, but for some people this may become unhealthy. The aim of this anonymous and confidential survey is to identify the kinds of factors associated with suicidal feelings in men and women.

The survey takes about 20 minutes to complete and you can find out the overall results of the study after the study has finished. If you would like to participate in the survey, or for further information, please follow this link: http://www.psytoolkit.org/cgi-bin/psy2.0.7/survey?s=hKQtB

The study has ethical approval from UCL.

Preferences for dealing with mental health issues

People often choose to cope with problems such as anxiety and depression in various ways, for example, seeking help from friends, self-help books, or a mental health professional. This anonymous and confidential survey is about what makes people decide to seek help and what kind of help they decide to choose. We are also interested in whether men and women make these decisions differently. The survey takes about 20 minutes to complete and you can find out the overall results of the study after the study has finished. If you would like to participate in the survey, or for further information, please follow this link http://www.psytoolkit.org/cgi-bin/psy2.0.5/survey?s=Hv6RX  

The study has been approved by the UCL Research Ethics Committee.

The Men’s Health Forum need your support

It’s tough for men to ask for help but if you don’t ask when you need it, things generally only get worse. Especially during a major pandemic like Covid-19. So we’re asking.

Men appear more likely to get Covid-19 and far, far more likely to die from it. The Men's Health Forum are working hard pushing for more action on this from government, from health professionals and from all of us. Why are men more affected and what can we do about it? We need the data. We need the research. We need the action. Currently we're the only UK charity doing this - please help us.

Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
