Trinity College Dublin seeking girls aged 13-18 to take part in a mental health study
Trinity College Dublin are seeking girls aged 13-18 to take part in research studies that seeks to understand why mental health difficulties emerge during adolescence.
The first study looks at emotion regulation and coping in female adolescents, aged 13-19, and involves a non-invasive brain scan (MRI) and some clinical and behavioural assessments. Participants will receive €20 and a picture (jpg) of their brain. Unfortunately, those currently taking medication (e.g., SSRI) cannot be included
The second study is a pilot Mindfulness Self-Compassion intervention programme. It is an 8-week programme called “Making Friends with Yourself” designed specifically to help young people develop skills that will enable them to be kind and caring towards themselves when they are experiencing a difficult time. The programme involves a weekly session where around 10 young people will meet weekly with a facilitator who is a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist (Dr. Elma Hedderman). It will take place on Thursdays from 7-9pm in the main Trinity Campus, starting on November 2nd.
