We would like to invite you to participate in this research project. You should only participate if you want to; choosing not to take part will not disadvantage you in any way. Before you decide whether you want to take part, please read the following information carefully and discuss it with others if you wish. Ask us if there is anything that is not clear or you would like more information.

This study is investigating the factors affecting professional mental help seeking in both ethnic minorities and White British nationals. This online questionnaire will ask a few questions and the answers are in the format of a scale in which you will be asked to indicate your response from 1 (least likely) to 7(most likely). It should take no longer than 15 minutes, and if you miss out a question, you will be prompted to answer before continuing onto the next page. You may also choose not to answer a question by using the tick box.

It is up to you to decide whether or not to take part. If you choose not to participate, you won't incur any penalties or lose any benefits to which you might have been entitled. However, if you do decide to take part, you will be given this information sheet to keep and asked to sign a consent form. Even after agreeing to take part, you can still withdraw at any time and without giving a reason.

All data will be collected and stored in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

If you have any questions related to the study, feel free to contact me on the details given above.
