The effects of parental suicide in childhood: Interviews with young adults on their personal experience after losing a parent by suicide.

I am completing my two year MA Trauma course at the University of Nottingham and obtained approval from the ethics committee to carry out my research.

My overall aim for this research is to explore the impact of parental suicide related to the needs of children and receiving support. I am keen to find participants who:

  • have experienced parental or caregiver bereavement by suicide from the ages of 5 to 12
  • aged 18 to 40 to take part
  • ideally located within access to Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire or East Staffordshire for the interviews to take place

It is intended as an opportunity for the participants to express their views through interviews on issues such as their personal experiences relating to their loss of a parent/caregiver by suicide in their childhood.

If you are interested in this study please contact me and I can send you further information for your perusal.

Thank you for taking the time to consider this study.

Warm wishes,
Liana
