I'm a postgrad student and I'm doing a research on online support groups and would like you to participate in the survey. Just to confirm again "ALL PARTICIPANTS REMAIN ANONYMOUS". Please read the participation information sheet when you click on the survey link. This project is being undertaken as a part of an MSc; within the Institute of Work, Health & Organization (I-WHO), which is a postgraduate institute of applied psychology at the University of Nottingham. I am conducting a research on the \"Impact of online support groups on bipolar patients\".
The use of internet has enabled and accelerated new forms of human interactions and individuals are more comfortable discussing sensitive issues online.
The purpose of this research is to explore the effectiveness of online support groups and the extent to which it has helped members to cope with their problems.
The study involves a survey that is to be completed by the members of the group as well as messages posted by the members.
This study has been reviewed and has been given a favourable opinion by the Institute of Work, Health & Organization's Research Ethics Committee.
