About the researcher

I am Danielle Crawford, a postgraduate student from the University of Dundee. I have a keen interest in mental health and how feeling included in a group may benefit an individual’s mental health and also where we might struggle to form relationships with others. I would like to invite you to participate in my study which will feature self-ratings of mental health symptoms and what groups you consider yourself to belong to/be a part of. This project will be overseen by my supervisor, Prof. Fabio Sani.
