I’ve received this request from an academic that is researching schizophrenia. It seems like something we would want to support:
Are you the parent of an adult child with a serious mental illness?
If so, you have the opportunity to participate in an on-line survey that looks at relationships between parents and their adult children with serious mental illness.
Specifically we are looking for parents of adult children who have a mental illness that significantly impacts their functioning such as a diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder, Major Depression, Schizophrenia, or Schizoaffective Disorder.
The study focuses on the types of things that parents do to provide support to their adult children with a serious mental illness, different aspects of parent-child relationships, and parental wellbeing. We are interested in your experiences!
If you complete the survey, you will have the opportunity to be entered into a drawing for a $20 Amazon gift card. You can complete the survey on your computer at a time convenient for you.
Below is a link to the survey. The survey takes no longer than about 50 minutes to complete.
You are eligible to participate in the study if:
- You are the parent of an adult child who is at least 18 years of age and who has been diagnosed with a serious mental illness.
You do not need to be in contact with your adult child to be eligible to participate.
You participation is completely voluntary and you are free to skip any questions you do not want to answer, or stop at any time.
Your name or your parent’s name will not be associated with your responses.
We hope that you can help us by sharing your views.
