University Of Edinburgh Study

The University Of Edinburgh, School of Health in Social Science are recruiting participants for an MSc project on self-harm and autistic women.  No studies to date have investigated self-harm from the unique perspective of autistic women and they hope this research will provide an important insight into these experiences.

The project has received ethical approval and specific measures have been put in place to minimise risk to participants given the sensitivity of the topic in question. Evidence of this can be provided by the study team on request.
The study recognises the importance of centring autistic people’s voices in research and the project team features an autistic researcher who they have co-created this project with.
