Work With Us
Whilst the impacts on physical health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have been an important consideration, the mental health impacts are equally as important to consider given the longer-term impact that the pandemic might have on different aspects of our mental health.
We seek to understand the mental health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic across different groups in society, to understand how the mental health of different groups has been impacted, what actions people have both benefited from, and the actions people would like to see in the future in order for them to cope well, to support resilience, and to protect their mental health.
The researchers are looking for participants over the age of 18 living in Scotland, who have a long-term physical health condition and who would be willing to participate in a one-to-one interview about their experience of the COVID-19 lockdown and the impact that the pandemic has had on their mental health. The researchers are particularly keen to speak to people living with COPD.
The interview will last approx. one hour and will be arranged at a time convenient to participants. Each participant will receive a £20 gift voucher to thank them for their time.
