Family Cohesion and Flexibility in Early Episode Psychosis

May 23, 2014

Maya Gupta, a PhD candidate at Queen's University, is examining the factors that are associated with adaptive family functioning in families with an individual who has early episode psychosis.

She is looking to recruit caregivers of an individual with early episode psychosis (e.g., parent, guardian, or other family member) to complete an online survey, which takes approximately 30-40 minutes to complete. For each caregiver who participates in this study, the researchers will donate $10 to the Schizophrenia Society of Canada. The survey can be accessed at the following web address:  http://queensu.fluidsurveys.com/s/family/support/

Are you over the age of 18 years old and have ever been provided with a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)?

Date: September 13, 2013

Do you have a child aged between 4 and 17 years of age? 

If you answered ‘yes’ to both of these questions, you are invited to participate in a voluntary and anonymous questionnaire exploring the relationship between symptoms of borderline personality disorder (BPD), parenting behaviours and attitudes. The purpose of this research is to explore whether symptoms of BPD may impact on parenting attitudes and behaviours, and to identify protective factors that determine healthy family functioning in these families. We are inviting participation from both mums and dads who have had a past or present diagnosis of BPD.

This research is being conducted as there has been a notable gap in services when it comes to linking parents with a diagnosis of borderline personality disorder with appropriate parenting supports that are sensitive to their needs.

If you decide to participate in this research, you will be asked to answer some questions about your mental health, parenting attitudes and behaviours, and to comment on behaviours for each child aged between 4 and 17 years of age. You will not be asked to include any specific identifying information about yourself or your children. The length of the questionnaire may vary depending on the size of your family but we recommend putting at least an hour aside to complete it. Participation is voluntary. You can access the questionnaire online by typing the following address into your browser: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/56RRH5G 

If you do not have access to the internet, please contact the researcher on the details below and you can be sent a hardcopy of the questionnaire to complete and return in a prepaid self-addressed envelope.

Those who participate in the research will go in the draw to win one of five Amazon.com vouchers valued at $50AU (a suitable alternative may be arranged for those who don’t have internet access). For more details about this study, please refer to the information sheet attached to this letter or contact the researcher for more details.

HELP US LEARN MORE ABOUT NEGATIVE LIFE EVENTS AND MENTAL HEALTH AND CONTRIBUTE TO IMPROVED MENTAL HEALTH CARE

Date: April 18, 2013

I am a graduate student in clinical psychology at the University of Arkansas. Please consider helping me with a study that will help us better understand how various traumatic events can affect a person’s mental health.

We know that childhood abuse and domestic violence put victims at risk for undesired mental health symptoms or disorders, such as Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Depression. Women are much more at risk for these problems, partly because they are at a greater risk of being victimized through violent means. For these reasons, I am interested in learning more about how exposure to traumatic events leads to negative mental health outcomes in some victims. Your participation can contribute to important advancements in psychological knowledge, prevention, and intervention – and how that might be different than people who have not experienced traumatic events. You do not have to have experienced a traumatic event to participate.

If you answer this survey, you will have a chance of winning one of five $100 gift certificates to Amazon.com. (Only completed surveys are eligible for the drawing.) You must be female and at least 18 years of age to participate. (A maximum of 200 participating individuals are anticipated. Given this projection, odds of winning a gift card are approximately 1 in 40.) All you have to do is visit this website http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/jhenrie and answer questions regarding your life history, ways of processing life events, and mental health. The survey will take approximately one hour to complete.

All of your answers will be recorded anonymously, and all information will be kept confidential to the extent allowed by law and University policy (IRB Protocol #: 13-02-481).

If you would like to participate, please visit this website: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/jhenrie. Instructions for entering the drawing will be provided at the end of the survey.

Thank you in advance for your participation, and please do not hesitate to contact me via email with any questions or concerns about this study.

If you are 18 years or older, you can take a 10 minute survey on the Internet by going to https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/K2WTFJR. Participation in the study is voluntary. You and all of your answers will remain anonymous.

If you have any questions about the study or need further information, please feel free to contact the principal investigator, Dr. Marlene Maheu, at http://support.telehealth.org/ Our study is a collaborative effort among researchers at the Florida State University College of Medicine and Kansas University Medical Center, and the TeleMental Health Institute

Suicide Survey for Students and Teachers

Date: February 28, 2013

Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death for youth ages 10-24. We invite students and teachers to take a brief anonymous survey to help us study suicide. 

Suicide is a serious public health issue that causes long-lasting harmful effects on individuals, families, communities, and society. According to the Center for Disease Control, suicide is the third leading cause of death for youth between the ages of 10 and 24.

As part of our research, we are collecting data from students ages 15-24 and from educators whose curriculum regularly includes classical and popular literature. Many literary works (such as "Romeo and Juliet") contain suicidal themes and events.

The purpose of this survey is to help us assess whether or not reading novels and plays with suicidal content in school (whether done in English Literature, Drama, History, or Foreign Language Class) affects students' attitudes towards suicide.

Furthermore, we are trying to assess to what degree educators are offering suicide awareness and prevention resources to their students when the curriculum contains material about suicide and to what extent students are aware of the educators' suicide awareness and prevention efforts. The survey is completely anonymous. Please be honest and please tell your friends about us!

If you are interested in participating please go to https://www.facebook.com/SuicideSurveyForStudentsAndTeachers

Survey on Child Sleep Behavior

We would like to invite all caregivers in this group to take a survey about their child’s sleep behavior. This survey is a part of a research study about the sleep habits of children, and is conducted at and approved by the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.

Although articles about the importance of sleep are appearing all over the media, surprisingly, little is known about the typical sleep habits of children since parents are usually not questioned about their child’s sleep when there is a problem. This survey will help us better understand typical sleep behavior in children. This information will be invaluable in helping us diagnose sleep disorders in children and guide parents in regards to normal childhood sleep behavior.

The survey consists of questions pertaining to your child’s sleep habits and previous medical history. It takes 20 to 30 minutes to take the online survey. Your participation in this survey is completely voluntary.

To reach the survey, click here.

If you would rather not do an online survey, we can also send a printable version, which can be filled out by hand and mailed back to us.
