Research Project Opportunity: Parents/Guardians of Youth Involved w/Mental Health Services

York University & Wilfrid Laurier University

Has your family struggled financially?

Are you a PARENT or GUARDIAN with a child, 12- to 24-years-old, involved with child and youth mental health services AND who is providing or has provided support to your family to help your family “get by”?

Participate in a FOCUS GROUP or INTERVIEW: Share your experiences, thoughts, and feelings as a parent/guardian and your child’s experiences, thoughts, and feelings about the support they provide to your family to help your family “get by” to make ends meet. The support can be financial (paid or unpaid), material, physical, psychological, or emotional. You have the option of remote or in-person with social distancing.

Receive $50.00 for your time and to cover the costs of participating.

If you want more information, or if you or someone you know is interested in participating, please contact Dr. Maria Liegghio directly by telephone/text at 416-220-0694 or by email at mlieg@yorku.ca by November 30, 2020. A time to meet individually with you and your parent/guardian will be set-up, at which time you will be provided with the full details of the project.

Ethics clearance was provided by the Office of Research Ethics at York University, as well as the Research Ethics Board at Wilfrid Laurier University. Funding support was provided as Insight Grant by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).
