Take part in our student study
When starting university, you can face various life changes; we call this a “transition”.
It is possible that these changes can have an adverse effect on your mental health, such as increasing the risk of anxiety and depression. The transition may also affect your diet as we see many new students follow unhealthy diets and gain weight. Despite the above observations, the association between mental health and diet quality of students has not been extensively studied.
Therefore we're looking for students to take part in our study which aims to investigate whether the diet quality of students is associated with their mental health, and also whether the mental health of students is associated with their diet quality. It will also mean we can look at the impact transitioning to university can have on diet quality and mental health.
We are now recruiting first-year university students living at student halls to complete an online survey about their diet and mental health. As a thank you for taking part, you will also be added to a draw to win one of two £100 vouchers!
If you’d like to take part, please complete the survey via this link.
The study is under the auspices of Lancaster University and has been approved by the Faculty of Health and Medicine Research Ethics Committee (FHMREC), Lancaster University (ref: FHMREC20128).
The study will continue to run until the end of the first academic semester.
