24 January 2020

The SIBL research project (based in the Division of Psychology and Mental health) aims to investigate the psychological experiences that are associated with non suicidal self-injury among young bisexual people. We aim to investigate this relationship by asking participants to complete an online survey once a week for 6 weeks


  • Aged 16 to 25 year old
  • Experienced non-suicidal thoughts or urges to self-injure and/or have self-injured with no suicidal intent within the last six months
  • Identify as bisexual or as attracted to more than one gender
