Call for participants – research on experiences of suicidal ideation

Adila Mahmood is undertaking her Doctorate in Counselling Psychology at the University of East London. She would like to invite individuals who have had experiences of suicidal ideation and not acted on these to share their first hand experiences.

My name is Adila Mahmood and I am conducting research on experiences of suicidal ideation. I’m interested to hear from individuals about their experiences of having suicidal thoughts, and not acting on these. I believe this is a vital piece of research which will enable us to gain insight and understanding of suicidal ideation. In future, this can allow us to tailor and improve interventions and support that is offered to these individuals.

I would like to hear from you if you:

  • Are over 18
  • Have experienced suicidal thoughts and not acted on these/attempted suicide
  • Have recovered from having suicidal thoughts for at least 2 years
  • Have had any form of therapy in the past to address your concerns

The research involves taking part in a face-to-face or Skype interview. All interviews will be completely confidential and all identifiable information will be altered to protect your identity.

My research has been approved by the university’s ethics committee, which can accessed through contacting my Director of Studies, Dr. Yannis Fronimos,

Please contact me on if you would like to participate, or have any questions about the research.

Your participation will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
