National centre for mental health

We are investigating the factors that may lead to the development of mental health problems, from genetics and biology to psychological and environmental factors.

Taking part is easy: it involves completing an online survey which asks about your contact details and some personal information, like your ethnicity and date of birth. There are also questions about your mental and physical health, as well as your lifestyle. It should take around 10-15 minutes to complete and all the information you provide is confidential. 

Depending on the information you provide, for example, where you live or the diagnoses you’ve received, we may contact you about arranging a one-to-one interview with one of our researchers to help us collect more detailed information about your experiences.


We are looking for:

Participants must be 18 years or older to take part online. Under 18s can take part, but this must be done in person. We can either travel to their homes or they can visit us at our clinic in Cardiff.


  • Online/home-based


We do not provide a financial incentive to take part in our study.
