Survey: LGBT Self-Injury

Understanding factors involved in self-injury among LGBTQ individuals

Interested in helping with some important research?

We are looking for LGBTQ individuals between 18 and 25 years of age to participate in a research project looking at self-injury. You do not need to have a history of self-injury to participate. The study will take approximately one hour to complete and can be done ONLINE, from your own computer, on your own time. 

Participants will be eligible to win one of two $100 gift cards for Amazon.com. The draw will occur in Spring, 2013. Chances of winning will depend on the number of those who participate.

If interested please go to http://www.westresearch.ca/lgbtqstudy/ or email the graduate coordinator of this project, Jill St. Denis (j.stdenis@psy.uoguelph.ca).

This project has been reviewed and received clearance from the Research Ethics Board at the University of Guelph (REB#12FE001).

    Good start, most studies are grant funded and have to have parameters, but I find it fascinating the age limit of the group. IMHO this study will grossly under-represent bis who self-injure. Good luck with your work, hopefully it will prompt others to do this research.

    They should extend it to people over the age of 13. There are a lot of young young adults who are LGBTQ that self harm also.
