The SASH online survey will be closing in a couple of weeks, so will be trying to see if we can hit 100 responses by then. Meanwhile I’ve been busy analysing the survey responses along with the focus groups. Some really interesting differences coming out between what young people in the groups are saying and what the survey responses are saying. It is a bit too early to share any of the findings just yet – but looking forward to doing so over the next few months.

I’m visiting more schools in the next month to hopefully do a few more group discussions, which will be great. I’ve not done a group discussion since lots of the survey responses came in – so thinking about ways of introducing some of the survey findings into the group discussions to see what people think of them.

Finally – the animation team is slowly coming together, and there have been some really great ideas for what to do with the film already. There is so much data for the team to work with, but I think the team will be able to find a story in it somewhere (or maybe a few stories!).

SASH Online Survey Launched Today

The SASH Research Project online survey is now available.

The survey enables anyone aged 14-16, who has direct experience of self-harm, drug or alcohol use to get involved in the study without having to take part in a face to face interview.

The survey is open to anyone aged 14-16 who is living in the UK and has ever self-harmed, used drugs or alcohol.

The survey asks you to write about your thoughts and ideas about self-harm, drug and alcohol use. You can write about your experiences, or those of other people. All of the questions are optional so you don’t have to write about anything you don’t want to.

Just click on the picture to get to the survey.

The survey is completely anonymous.

As an added bonus, everyone who takes part can opt in to a prize draw to win one of two £20 Amazon gift vouchers. The draw will take place in May 2014.

The SASH research project is branching out! To give more people chance to get involved, I’m going to be visiting schools over the next few months to hold some more discussion groups.

As well as this, I’m developing an online survey, so that young people who have self-harmed, or used drugs or alcohol, can get involved more easily. I’ll post an update once the survey is up and running, will be testing it out over the next few weeks.

Alongside this, I am still holding one-to-one interviews, as well as group discussions in non-school settings.

Very exciting, and lots to do!
