Understanding Self-harm In The General Population

Dear participant,


Thank you for taking the time to read this message and consider taking part in this study. My name is Abigail Paterson and I am a PhD student at the University of Strathclyde. The purpose of this study in my PhD is to better understand self-harm in the general population.

The study invites you to complete two questionnaires, three months apart. Each questionnaire will ask you about your self-harm over the last three months and the thoughts/feelings you may have had. Each questionnaire will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. 

There is some inclusion criteria in order to take part in this study:

  • You are aged 18 or above
  • You reside in the UK
  • You have engaged in self-harm in the last 3 months

We understand this is a sensitive area, so please think carefully before taking part.

For more information and to take part in the questionnaire please click on the link below.

Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you again.


Yours faithfully,

Abigail Paterson
