Exploring the effect of Alcohol on Mental Health

26 March 2018

This study will look at the effect of gender on the relationship between alcohol intake and psychotic like experiences (PLE) in a community sample aged between 18-25 years in the UK. Research into alcohol use needs further research given the links with physical health, psychological health, and risk behaviours. This study focuses on 18 to 25 year olds due to the high rate of drinking within this group and the bad outcomes on health, mental health, and risk-taking behaviours.

Requirements

  • 18 to 25 years old
  • Participants living in the UK only.
  • Participants must be able to read and respond to questions in English
  • No current contact with mental health services
  • No previous contact with mental health services
