#chatsafe suicide campaign trial
This #chatsafe project aims to assess the impact of the #chatsafe guidelines and associated campaign materials on young peoples’ capacity to communicate about suicide safely on social media platforms.
You can participate in this study if you are aged 16 – 25, live in Australia, have not previously participated in the #chatsafe social media campaign, and have experienced the suicide or suicide attempt of a young person you know, or you know of a suicide by a young person that has occurred within your community (online or offline) in the past two years. You also need to have an active Instagram, Snapchat or Facebook account.
Participation in this study involves receiving #chatsafe content direct messaged to your social media platform of choice for a period of six weeks. You will also be asked to complete three rounds of questionnaires. All young people who take part in this study will be reimbursed $30 for each questionnaire they complete.
