Third year psychology students from Trinity College Dublin are conducting a study titled: Mental Health and Wellbeing in Families: Experiences, Needs and Support Interviews with Support Service
The purpose of this study is to investigate the mental health and wellbeing of individuals who have and do not have relatives affected by mental health difficulties in addition to examining their experiences, needs and use of support. Furthermore, we hope to investigate the needs of individuals affected by mental health difficulties in a relative as perceived by support services and to examine which needs support services provide for. Ultimately, this is an exploratory study which aims to identify the areas of support which could be focused on and made available based on the perspectives of individuals affected by mental health difficulties in a relative.
If you volunteer to take part in this study, you will be asked to participate in an interview consisting of questions regarding your opinions on the experiences, needs and supports of individuals with a relative affected by mental health difficulties in Ireland.
Any information provided by you in this study will remain strictly confidential, and will only be accessed by the researchers and supervisors. Your data will be identified by a unique ID number and stored in folders or computer files. Any information linking you or your service to this unique ID number will be stored in a separate, password protected computer file.
