Information Page

We would like to invite you to take part in a research project. Before you decide whether to take part, it is important that you understand why the research is being done and what it will involve. Please take time to read this carefully and ask the researcher if you have any questions.

What is the purpose of the study?
This study aims to investigate the link between psychological variables and how they predict mental help seeking intentions.

Why have I been invited to take part?
You have received this invitation because you are an undergraduate student in the UK. We are hoping to recruit 100 for this study. However, to avoid causing any potential distress, you can only take part in the study if you are not currently in receipt of care for a mental health problem.

Do I have to take part?
No. It is up to you to decide whether or not you want to take part in this study. Please take your time to decide. You can decide not to take part or to withdraw from the study at any point until 4 weeks after taking part. If you wish to have your data withdrawn, please contact the researcher with your participant number and your data will then not be used. If you do decide to take part, you will be asked to consent on the next page.

What will happen to me if I agree to take part?
If you agree to take part and meet the inclusion criteria you will:
• Be asked to consent
• Provide a participant ID (the first letter of your surname, the last two letters of your mother’s maiden name, and the first two digits of your mobile phone number)
• Be asked to fill out 3 different questionnaires, which will take approximately 15 minutes.
• Upon completing the questionnaires, be fully debriefed.

Are there any disadvantages or risks to taking part?
The research will be asking about psychological variables and mental help seeking intentions, which could potentially cause distress. To avoid this, you can only take part in this study if you are not currently in receipt of care for a mental health problem. Also, the study will be looking at perceptions of the topic and not personal experiences.
