Psychological impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and experience: An International survey

Are you aged over 16 and able to complete an online questionnaire?

How has COVID-19 impacted your health and wellbeing? What has been helpful and what has not been helpful for your mental health?

Can you spare 15 minutes to help?

Researchers from a collaboration group would like to invite you to take part in a short questionnaire exploring the psychological impact of the coronavirus, its effect on our emotions, behaviour and wellbeing. This is the third phase of recruitment. . It does not matter if participants took part in previous phases or not, they are still able to take part in this third phase. The aim of this survey is to better understand how the coronavirus pandemic and resultant restrictions/lockdown are affecting our day to day lifestyle. We hope to find out what is helpful for people during this time and also what may be causing some people to be affected more than others in terms of their wellbeing.

Anyone over the age of 16 with access to be able to complete this online questionnaire can take part.

It is up to you to decide whether to take part or not. You are free to withdraw from the study at any time, without giving a reason and without consequence. This survey is completely voluntary and you can stop completing it at any time. You also do not have to answer any questions you don’t want to, you can just skip them.

Recruitment will run until 30.09.2021.
