Samaritans in Ireland and Northern Ireland are conducting research to further understand the extent, impact and nuances of stigma in relation to self-harm.
Through this research we aim to develop potential responses to self-harm related stigma across the island of Ireland and ensure Samaritans is able to offer the right supports for those who need us, when they need us.
We are looking for the perspectives from everyone across the island of Ireland, from those with lived experience, to those who work in mental health, to those who feel they know very little about self-harm. The more viewpoints we can gather the better our chance is of developing recommendations inclusive of all.
The survey is open to anyone 18 and over who resides in Ireland or Northern Ireland, and we would encourage you to both partake in and share this survey.
The survey closes on Friday, 30th September.
Through a successful tendering process, the research is being led by three academic and practicing psychologists in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
This survey was approved by South-East Technological University Ethics Committee (Carlow Campus).
