The University of Exeter's Medical School is looking for people to take part in their 'Stranger on the Bridge' study.
They would like to hear from you if you are aged 18 or over and fall into one of the following groups:
i) You have personal experience of attempting or seriously considering taking your own life in a public location and you were prevented from doing so by a stranger.
ii) You have personal experience of trying to prevent someone you didn’t know (a stranger) from taking their own life in a public location.
The type of location doesn’t matter (it doesn’t need to have been a bridge), as long as it was a public place, as opposed to your own or somebody else’s home.
If you are in doubt about whether your experience fits, please get in touch with them. They will be happy to talk it through with you and will tell you whether they can include you in the study.
For more information, please email the researchers at PUBLIS@exeter.ac.uk.
You can find more details, including what the study will involve, on this info sheet: participant_information_sheet_group_1__2_final.pdf
