Understanding the Mental Health of Doctoral Researchers (U-DOC)

Recent news headlines have put student mental health into the spotlight.  More and more students are experiencing mental health difficulties, but we don’t know much about the mental health needs of Doctoral Researchers, also known as PhD students.

We would like to invite doctoral researchers who are currently studying for their PhD at a UK university to take part in an anonymous online survey which will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.

We would like to be able to include people with no personal experience of mental health problems as well as people who have experienced mental health problems.

If you take part in the study, you’ll also have the opportunity to enter a prize draw to win one of two iPad Mini 4’s.
