How Social Connections Impact Health
We want to hear from people over the age of 16 who may experience stigma associated with health or social problems including having a gambling problem or substance use problem, large body weight, or homelessness to help understand their social networks.
You will be asked to complete a short online survey (20 minutes) that includes questions about your social networks and experience of isolation and loneliness, as well as housing and neighbourhood experiences, substance use and gambling behaviour, physical wellbeing, and experiences of stigma and discrimination. At the end of the survey, you can indicate your availability to participate in a follow-up interview (30-40 minutes). You can decide to do only the survey or both the survey and interview.
Your participation will help improve our knowledge regarding the social networks of people experiencing health-related stigma that can be used by research partners to improve service delivery.
