This research project has met the criteria of Freedom 2 b[e] and been approved by the board to be posted on this website.
This in an opportunity to be involved in some psychological research that i am conducting as a part of my psychology degree! It takes the form of an confidential online questionnaire at a secured website.
This study investigates some of the possible influencing factors on mental health outcomes for gay-christians. Specifically the study is looking at individuals levels of religious affiliation, perfectionism, worry, and dissociation and how that relates to their general mental health. As research on religion and mental health has not been conducted often with homosexual participants, this study has the potential to provide important information to mental health service providers that will increase understanding of particular issues relating to gay-Christians and perhaps assist the development of intervention strategies for the reduction and prevention of mental health problems in this population.
Who can participate?
This study invites to participate gay men who are between the ages of 20 and 40 who also identify as either Christian or non-religious.
If you would like to participate or would like more information, please go to:
and click on the link entitled “Gay and Christian: is there a relationship between religious affiliation and mental health in gay men who also identify as Christian?” It should be the third link down the page, you will then be presented with more information about the study and directed to the questionnaire.
This study is relying on word of mouth for participants, so you are more than welcome to pass on the information anyone you know who may fit the profile.
Thank you very much!
