The School of Psychology at the University of Surrey has a partnership with PsychForums. This provides us with the opportunity to reach individuals with mental health conditions that may not otherwise participate in research.  PsychForums is one of the biggest online support forum about Psychology and Mental Health. PsychForums gives access to researchers under specific conditions. If you wish to use this resource, please see the guidelines for how to proceed which can be found here.

You will need to have appropriate School and Faculty approval for your research proposal before approaching PsychForums.
