In this project we will be asking you lots of questions about your emotional health and wellbeing. However the information you provide will be kept confidential. That means that, whatever you say on the questionnaires, we will not share this information with anyone else, except once it has been made anonymous. This means that even if you tell us on the questionnaires that you are having big problems, we will not share this information with anyone else, or contact you to offer you help. However;
Help is here if you need it!
In fact, if you have any worries about your emotional or physical health there are lots of people who can help you!
You might choose to speak to a teacher at your school that you know well, or your school’s student welfare lead.
Your own family doctor can also help you with a whole range of issues related to your health and emotional wellbeing, alcohol and drugs, sexuality and other issues.
Alternatively you could choose to look online at one of the national charities that can offer support and advice to young people on a whole range of issues. These include (click to follow link to external websites):
Counsellors available 24 hours a day to provide support plus the option to ask questions via email, online chat, message boards etc.
Information for and about young people’s mental health.
Finally if you have any questions, you are always welcome to contact the MYRIAD research team via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 01865 613 164.
