'Mechanics of the Mind' study
"Is there a connection between an interest in the Paranormal,
and experiencing mental health issues?"
WE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS A SENSITIVE SUBJECT AND PARTICIPATION IS ANONYMOUS.
AT NO POINT WILL YOU BE ASKED YOUR NAME OR CONTAT DETAILS.
It is estimated that 1 in 6 people in the past week experienced a common mental health problem*.
We are looking to conduct a survey with people who have an interest in the Paranormal (Supernatural, Preternatural, Unexplained etc) to explore the possibility that the rate is higher amongst this demographic. The results of this study will form the foundation of our future studies.
TO BE CLEAR:
YOU DO NOT NEED TO HAVE EXPERIENCED A MENTAL HEALTH ISSUE TO TAKE PART IN THIS SURVEY JUST AN INTEREST IN THE PARANORMAL.
The survey that follows will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete and consists of multiple choice questions.
Thank you in advance.
