Address katgibbz@hotmail.com. Your information will only be available to me, and once I have the details off of the computer they will be no longer traceable back to you personally.

Debrief

The study that you have taken part in involved a questionnaire on religious commitment, a questionnaire in regard to two given vignette’s about mental illness and some demographic details about yourself. What this means is that the study looks for differences in attitudes to mental illness across different faith groups from the questionnaire’s filled in by you.
The aim for the study you have taken part in is to assess the faith group variance of attitudes toward mental illness
Currently there is a lack of research into how religion and spirituality affect attitudes toward mental illness, and research is warranted given the importance of providing appropriate and relevant health care.
Thankyou very much for your participation in this study, your information will be kept completely anonymous at all times.
If you have any further questions, issues or concerns then please do not hesitate to contact me. Kat Gibbard katgibbz@hotmail.com
