New research poster

Visited Crew 2000 to deliver posters today. If you are in Edinburgh and would like to put a poster up to let young people know about the research – let me know, I can visit you with some copies.

Just in time for summer, the first discussion group has now taken place (hooray!). I think it went well and that those who took part found it interesting (or at least they said they did!).

The discussion raised a lot of fascinating points, and very much confirmed for me just how important it is that the voices of young people under 16 are included in research on drugs, alcohol and self-harm.

I’m really looking forward to hearing what others have to say in future groups and interviews.

There is now a (rather lonely) facebook page for the project, do stop by and like it:

Using my (pretty limited!) design skills, I have put together a poster advertising the research project. The poster can be circulated widely and put up wherever anyone thinks it might be seen by people who may want to do an interview.

The poster is aimed at possible interviewees only: so anyone in and around Edinburgh, aged 14-16 who has:

  • Used drugs or alcohol
  • Self-harmed (usually this means things like cutting or burning yourself, or maybe taking too many tablets, but self-harm can mean different things to different people)
  • Self-harmed AND used drugs/alcohol

Between now and the end of the year I’m hoping to do interviews with 20 people. So, if you think you fit the bill, or know someone who does – get in touch!
