Can you help us change the way informal carers are supported?
As part of my doctoral thesis* I am researching the emotional experience of supporting a loved one with a mental health need, so we can better understand how to provide more useful and relevant resources to informal carers.
Would you be willing to share your experiences with me in a survey?
People who have been involved so far reported learning more about the differences between shame and guilt and how these may show up in their relationship.
If you provide informal support to a friend/relative/partner who has accessed mental health support for more than six months, I would really appreciate hearing from you.
You can read more about or access the study here: https://lancasteruni.eu.
I have tried to make it as easy as I can to complete: responses are mostly tick boxes (minimal typing), it is mobile friendly and it usually takes less than 20 minutes. All responses remain anonymous.
Please contact Laura Noir, trainee clinical psychologist, on L.Noir@lancaster.ac.uk if you have any questions.
