We are a Harvard University research team currently working on a study looking at people who harm themselves to better understand what kinds of thoughts motivate these behaviors.
We are interested in recruiting people who use online forums to participate in our research study. This study will be completed online over the course of two months and participation is completely voluntary. People who are interested in participating will be compensated up to $100 in online gift cards to Amazon. Additionally, 6 of the 100 participants we are trying to recruit will earn an addition $100 in gift cards for their participation.
A few important things to know about the study are: 1. All information collected will be kept completely confidential. 2. Participation is voluntary. The link we provide will send you to a website telling you about the study. Once on that site, you can decide whether or not you want to participate. Also, if you start to participate and decide that you no longer feel comfortable or you are no longer interested, you can end it without any penalty or punishment. 3. In addition to collecting information from participants, we will also provide links to treatment resources throughout the study.
Please send an email to HarvardTECStudy@gmail.com if you are interested in participating. If you would like to remain anonymous, please use an email address that does not contain identifiable information (such as your name). Once you email us, we will send you a link to the screening questionnaire to see if you qualify and to tell you more about the study.
Thanks for your consideration!
