The SASH research project is now recruiting young people (aged 14-16) for group discussions or one-to-one interviews. The discussions and interviews will be exploring what young people have to say about self-harm, including drug and alcohol use. I will be contacting young people through different health projects and youth groups, with the help of lots of very helpful project workers.

Over the past few weeks I’ve been busy meeting different people across Edinburgh to tell them about the SASH research project, so that they can tell young people who might be interested in getting involved. If you know of any groups working with young people in Edinburgh who might like to help out with recruiting, let me know!

I’ve added links to the information leaflets for workers and potential participants to a new page, find it here. Anyone who needs extra information should email me – I can also send out as many hard copies of leaflets and info sheets as needed, just get in touch.

As well as getting recruitment started up, I’ve been putting together the research advisory group. The group now has four very experienced youth workers on board. By the end of May, I hope to have added four young people to the group. Together, the advisory group will be giving me input and advice at key stages of the project, to make sure what I do and say makes sense to young people and youth workers.
