I'm Dan, I'm part of the marketing team at online therapy service HelloSelf (http://www.helloself.com
). We're hoping to do some research and was wondering if anyone here would be interested in participating.
Basically, we are looking to produce some content which explores how different jobs can affect our mental health. We are speaking to people with varied careers including teachers, delivery drivers, bankers and many more. We're not looking to promote our service at all, we just want to write some blogs on how the work we do impacts, or has previously impacted, our mental health.
Nothing tricky, it would most likely just be some questions emailed over and perhaps a phone call. It can be anonymised if you prefer and we would not print anything you weren't happy with. For anyone willing to participate we would offer a free online assessment (which includes a phone call with an Assistant Psychologist) and a free session with one of our therapists - all of which have at least 5 years post-qualification experience. You are not obliged to continue after this (nor are you obliged to do it at all) but you are of course welcome to.
If you have any questions please let me know! Feel free to direct message me. If you've been thinking about speaking to someone hopefully this can be a way to get some professional help free of charge.
Our platform is currently only available in the UK, but if you would still like to contribute on how being an artist has impacted your mental health, we would welcome it!
