"Quarterlife" crisis participants needed

Raginie Duara, Institute of Psychological Studies, is looking for 22-28 year olds to take part in her study.


Raginie is looking for: British Nationals aged 22-28, self-defined as:

  • having overcome, or currently coping successfully with, substantial challenges "finding your place in the worlld"
  • not currently in contact with any mental health support service

The research is about the phenomenon commonly called as quarterlife crisis. A period when one is 'finding one's place in the world'. This often involves, for example, looking for a life partner, settling with a job and knowing who one is.

The study involves two sessions. The first will be just briefing about the study and filling in some papers.  The participant will then collect photos related to problems and coping and talk about it in the interview to be followed.

The interview is the major part of the study where the participant is expected to talk about the problems and the coping experienced in the past or the present while using the photos taken by the participant for reference as and when required.

To enter or for more information, please email Raginie Duara.
