Suicide prevention research: deaf and hard of hearing participants needed

Preventing suicide is more important than ever. In the past 20 years, suicide has been increasing at an alarming rate. Research has shown that minority groups are at high risk for suicide, but we do not yet know about suicide risk in deaf and hard of hearing individuals. If we can identify their specific suicide risk factors, we can appropriately treat suicidal thoughts and behaviors in deaf and hard of hearing individuals.
 
This would make mental health care more accessible for DHH individuals as well as prevent suicides from happening. By filling out the anonymous survey linked below, you will not only be supporting suicide research, but also supporting other organizations working to reduce suicide. For each completed survey, $5 will be donated to a suicide prevention organization of your choice. Please take a few minutes to fill out the survey linked below and share with others.
 
 

This research study has been approved by Gallaudet's Institutional Review Board (IRB).
