Thank you for your interest in participating in our research!
Currently we have two projects seeking input; you can learn more about them below!
PROJECT 1: TRTL Research Registry
Interested in contributing to research on self-harm and suicide?
The Tracking Risk Over Time Lab (TRTL) in the Department of Psychological Sciences at TTU does research with people who have experienced self-injury, suicidal thoughts, or suicide attempts. By participating in TRTL research, you can help us to better understand these experiences, which we hope will ultimately improve treatments for people who are struggling.
We are looking for adults (ages 18+) who have had these difficulties in the past year to join our research registry. By joining the registry, you will hear about upcoming research for which you might be eligible! Joining the registry does NOT mean you have to participate in any other studies, and you can take yourself off the registry at any time. For more information, please click here to learn more.
PROJECT 2: Suicide Risk and Resilience Research with Trans and Gender Non-Conforming Adults
We are conducting an IRB-approved study to better understand risk and resilience factors that relate to suicidal thoughts and behaviors in gender diverse individuals. We are recruiting participants who are transgender, genderqueer, agender, gender non-conforming, non-binary, genderfluid, MTF, FTM, and/or any gender identity that is not cisgender. The study involves completing questionnaires and an interview remotely using videoconferencing, as well as responding to short surveys on your cell phone over 4 weeks. Participants can earn up to $165.
If you are over 18 years old, currently residing in the US, currently receiving mental health treatment, and have struggled with suicidal thoughts or behaviors in the past month, you may be eligible to participate in our study. To learn more and to see if you qualify, click here.
