Barriers to treatment for people with mental or emotional problems



This survey is for adults (18+) in England who needed treatment or support from a medical professional for a mental or emotional problem at some point within the last 12 months but didn’t get it.

The survey has 10 questions and should take about 5-10 minutes to complete. The survey has two parts. The first part is about barriers to treatment and support and the second part is about you. 

The purpose of the survey is to understand why people don’t get treatment or support from medical professionals for mental and emotional problems. The survey is being conducted as part of a Master of Science (MSc) degree in Social Research Methods & Evaluation through The University of Huddersfield. Your feedback is really important and will also be used to inform organisations working to improve mental healthcare in England. 

All responses will be anonymous. This means that nobody will know who took part in the survey.

The survey will close on Friday 7th April.
