Description

We are looking for participants for a Focus Group Study about Social Media, Queer youth and Mental Health

Are you between 18 – 26 years old? Do you identify as part of the LGBTQ+? Do find yourself using social media frequently throughout the day? Have you been diagnosed with anxiety and/or depression?

If so, we are looking for people to participate in a 60 – 90 minute small group discussion about their experiences on social media. Discussions will take place on Zoom through video and will be audio recorded. You will be asked about your experiences online and how your mental health plays a role in your online interactions. After every question, participants will talk about their experiences in a small group.

Because LGBTQ+ youth are a vulnerable group who are more susceptible to depression and anxiety, and whose social media habits are understudied, the purpose of this study looks at the experiences of LGBTQ emerging adults who frequently use social media regarding both their mental health and how it affects their online experiences.

Participants will receive a $10 gift card at the end of each focus group.

This study (#4-20-0624) has been approved by the UCSB Office of Research (hsc@research.ucsb.edu; 805-893-3807 or 805-893-4290)
