Participants needed for research study

Participants needed for research study in gender identity, experiences of social support, discrimination and use of mental health services

People who identify as a gender different to their biological sex are more at risk of self-harming. This study looks at nonsuicidal self-injury as a way to cope with stress resulting from the type of social support received and experiences of discrimination, and the probability of getting help from mental health services.
(This study welcomes people of all gender identities, and those who do and do not self-injure, equally)

o To be eligible for this study you need to be 18 years or over
o The study will take 20-30 minutes to complete, in your own time and location
o This study will provide insight into how people of different gender identities experience social support and discrimination, and the coping techniques used. Research findings will help to develop strategies to help those who choose to self-injure as a coping technique.
