McMaster Study – The Barriers Canadian University Students Experience When Accessing Mental Healthcare

The Barriers Canadian University Students Experience When Accessing Mental Healthcare  


Research Volunteers Needed 


Researchers from the Department of Health, Aging, and Society at McMaster University are looking for volunteers who are current undergraduate students at any Canadian university who would like to share about their mental health throughout their undergraduate career. 


You would be asked to fill out a 10–15-minute survey asking personal questions regarding your mental health, experience using mental health resources through the university (if at all), and any barriers you may have experienced in caring for your mental well-being. You will also be asked some demographic questions (i.e., to identify your age, race, gender, etc.). The study will take place through the online platform, Lime Survey.  


You can access the survey by clicking on the following link:


You will be presented with a Letter of Information followed by a consent button before the survey begins. For the full details of the study, please click on the link above!
