Thank you for your interest in this survey. Please take a moment to read this information.

It is normal for people to feel down from time to time, but for some people this may become unhealthy. The aim of this survey is to identify the kinds of factors associated with suicidal feelings in men and women. We are posting this survey on various websites, some which are connected with mental health issues, and others of a more general nature. Even if you are feeling great and have never felt suicidal, your answers here will still be very useful to us.

There are no benefits to you in taking part in this survey, though we really appreciate any time you spend in taking part. The survey takes about 20 minutes to complete.

Some of these questions are of a sensitive nature, so please be assured that your responses are anonymous, in other words there is no way that you can be identified from filling in this questionnaire. Apart from actually telling us who you are there is no way that you can be identified just by filling in the questionnaire. Your answers won’t be submitted unless you click the ‘submit’ button at the end of the survey, so even if you start the questionnaire you can still change your mind about finishing the survey. The overall results of the survey will be published online (http://www.malepsychology.org.uk) around autumn 2016. These results will be a summary of the combined scores of all the people in the survey and no individual results or identifying information will be published.

The survey is entirely voluntary, anonymous, and confidential. It has been given ethical approval by the University College London, Department of Psychology Research Ethics Committee (Project ID number 4075/008). All data will be kept safe and secure in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. There are no immediate benefits to you of filling the survey, apart from knowing that you are contributing to something that may help people in the future. For ethical reasons we are taking responses only from adults (people over the age of 18).

Please discuss the information above with others if you want to, or contact me (see contact details above) if you have any questions. If you feel like talking to somebody about any of the issues in this survey you can call The Samaritans, who offer confidential emotional support. They can be emailed ( jo@samaritans.org ) phoned, or visited (contact details here http://www.samaritans.org/ ).
