Anxiety: Participate in online discussions about experiences of anxiety

Participants are needed for a study starting in January 2022 looking at your physical experience of anxiety and how you experience the world and other people when you feel anxious. The study will involve joining 4 group discussions of 1.5 hours over a period of 3 months, conducted online via zoom.

We are looking for participants who may be undergraduates or postgraduates, or in employment, training or neither.

You will be eligible for the study if you have experienced anxiety in the last three months, either as a common occurrence in your everyday life, or if you have had two or more memorable episodes of feeling anxious.

You will not be eligible for the study if you are currently receiving medication for anxiety or having regular sessions with a psychiatrist or psychological therapist.

The findings will contribute to the design of new therapeutic interventions. This research project is not itself a therapeutic intervention, although it may be helpful for some participants.
