Wellbeing and mental health in autistic young people

Post by elizabethh »

At the University of Birmingham we’re researching wellbeing and mental health in autistic young people (aged 14-25) and their families.

We know that autistic young people are more likely to experience poor mental health, and we hope our research will contribute to better understanding and identification of difficulties and more tailored support for young people and their families.

We are looking for autistic young people who do not have a co-occurring diagnosis of intellectual / learning disability to take part. We would also like to invite parents / caregivers to take part alongside their child.

Taking part involves completing an online survey including questions about yourself, your mental health and autism. This will take about half an hour.
Further information, consent forms, our contact details, and the questionnaires themselves can be found here:

Young Person Survey: https://bhampsychology.eu.qualtrics.com ... 6EouLE6S8J

Parent / Caregiver Survey: https://bhampsychology.eu.qualtrics.com ... VSmuITP4wZ

If the young person is under 16, their parent / caregiver will need to provide consent for them to participate through the survey as the first step.

This study forms part of a ClinPsyD and a PhD at the University of Birmingham. It is supervised by Dr Caroline Richards and has received ethics approval from the university for internet recruitment.
