Title: ' Does the Minority Stress model predict poor mental health in transgender people?'
Purpose of the online survey? There are a high number of trans people who experience mental health difficulties. One reason is that they experience stress from prejudice and the discrimination they may receive from others. This research aims to look at this stress and the effects it has on mental health in trans people.
Do I have to take part? No. If you decide to take part you are still free to withdraw at any time and without giving a reason. If you withdraw then the information collected up to that point cannot be erased and may still be used in the analysis. To take part you must identify as being trans and be 18 years old or older.
Prize draw: If you choose to complete the study you will be entered into a prize draw, and have the chance to win 1 of 10 prizes; 2 x £20 Amazon vouchers, 3 x £15 Amazon vouchers, and 5 x £10 Amazon vouchers.
