How do adolescents experience the death of a relative or a friend?
The death of a friend or a family member might have a profound, debilitating and lasting impact on adolescents. However, little is known about the grief characteristics, mental health and help-seeking experiences of adolescents. With the current study, we want to learn about grief in adolescents, and how to better support bereaved adolescents.
Who can take part in the project?
There are two different opportunities to take part in the project:
1. People who have lost a relative or friend, when they were 12 - 18 y.o.
You can take part in this study if you have lost a relative or a friend through any cause of death when you were aged between 12 and 18 years old, and experienced the loss between 6 months* and 10 years ago.
2. People 12 - 28 y.o. who have not experienced the loss of a relative or friend
You can also participate in the study if you are currently between 12 and 28 years old and are not bereaved by the death of a family member or a friend.
*Please be advised, we cannot accept participants who have lost a relative or a friend through any cause of death in the last 6 months.
What does the project involve?
We will ask you to complete a questionnaire which takes approximately 30 minutes.
