Are there any youngsters interested in taking part in a Post-Graduate's research project?

Hi, my name is Rachel Taylor-Coyle and I’m currently doing a Post-Graduate Higher Diploma in psychology. As part of this Post-Graduate Higher Diploma I am undertaking a research project titled ‘narcolepsy and its association with negative mental health: identifying protective factors for narcoleptic teenagers’. The aim of this study is to investigate whether a narcoleptic teenager’s social supports, self-esteem and coping skills can act as a protective factor in offsetting the negative mental health and depression associated with narcolepsy. I have compiled an evidence based questionnaire and I am now recruiting fifty volunteers (teenagers with narcolepsy aged 13-19) to complete this five minute online questionnaire. Participant’s scores will be compared against a control group of the same age range who do not have narcolepsy. I have a personal interest in this research as I have a family member with narcolepsy. I am inviting parents to facilitate their teenager’s participation in this study by asking them to complete the attached questionnaire. In addition I am also looking for teenagers aged 13-19 who do not have narcolepsy to participate in the control group. If parents wish to facilitate their non-narcoleptic teenagers to take part in this study please ask them to complete the attached 5 minute questionnaire. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me by email ■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■
