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.
Would the research project be a good fit for me?
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. To complete the BEREAVED survey click here.
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. To complete the NON-BEREAVED survey click here.
You cannot participate in the study if you have lost a relative or a friend through any cause of death in the last 6 months.
What would happen if I took part in the research project?
We will ask you to complete a questionnaire. This would take approximately 30 minutes.
