There are a multitude of COVID-19 related online surveys or symptom tracker apps. Many of these surveys are being conducted by universities, some are international providing a huge data set and others are UK only.
Psychological impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and experience: An international survey
Researchers from Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust are leading a collaboration group in a global study into the psychological impact of the Coronavirus pandemic and lockdown. The study is linked to the Medical Research Council global health research programme led by the Portsmouth-Brawijaya Centre for Global Health, Population, and Policy, University of Portsmouth. We invite people to take part in a short questionnaire exploring the psychological impact of the coronavirus, its effect on our emotions, behaviour and wellbeing. The aim of the survey is to better understand how the coronavirus and the impact the current lockdown is having on our day to day lifestyle, what is helpful and what may be causing some people to be affected more than others in terms of their wellbeing.
The survey is open to anyone over the age of 16 and able to complete the online questionnaire. We would encourage everyone, including staff, patients, friends and family to take part.
The survey takes around 15 minutes to complete and you can take it directly here.
Please ensure you select Devon Partnership Trust when asked where you heard about the survey.
For surveys relating to mental health and COVID-19 we would like to introduce the MQ Transforming mental health through research website. This site is specifically for mental health related research, many are for the general population while others are related to eating disorders, autism and young people’s mental health. There is something for everyone and new research is being added all the time. Click here to visit site.
We would love to hear feedback about your experience of research during the COVID-19 pandemic so please do email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any comments or queries.
Disclaimer: We feel it is important to give you the opportunity to take part in survey’s and research if you want to but we must state that the surveys available may have been through university ethics groups rather than the Health Research Authority (HRA) Research Ethics Committees (REC).
