An acquaintance is working on a PhD and is looking for people to take part in an online survey who: are over the age of 16, have some form of spiritual or religious belief, and have seen a mental health practitioner at some point in their lives (e.g., counsellor, psychologist, psychiatrist). It’s important that people from a wide range of cultural backgrounds, faiths, and ages take part.
This is an international study (i.e., people from any country can take part) which aims to help mental health practitioners become more aware of, and sensitive to, the spiritual and religious beliefs of their clients. The point of this is to ultimately improve mental health services for people in the community. As a small thank-you, anyone that takes part will be entered into a draw for a $300 Casio digital camera.
Anyone who is interested can take part by going to http://www.beliefs-survey.co.nz. There is also a paper survey available from:
