Research Opportunity – Trauma and Psychosis

RESEARCH OPPORTUNITY
NAMI is committed to improving the lives of people impacted by mental health conditions through effective treatments,
equitable public policies, and greater knowledge and understanding in society. Research is essential to advance each of
these goals.
When NAMI is approached to be involved in research of any type, at any level, we take it very seriously. NAMI’s Chief
Medical Officer Dr. Ken Duckworth and National Director of Research and Quality Assurance Dr. Teri Brister thoroughly
review the research protocols and methodology and the documentation that the study has been approved an Institutional
Review Board (IRB) to assure the safety of those involved. NAMI does not accept financial compensation for recruiting
research participants. NAMI also does not endorse any products or treatments. We share these research opportunity
notices with you, our field leaders, to distribute at your discretion if you believe that members of your community may be
interested in participating in these studies.
If you have questions about research at NAMI, please visit NAMI.org/research or email research@nami.org

WHAT IS THE STUDY?
This study is an anonymous online survey about psychosis and traumatic experiences. The goal of this study is to learn
how traumatic events may contribute to developing psychosis, and how experiencing psychosis may cause trauma. The
goal of this study is to increase our understanding of the relationship between psychosis and trauma by learning directly
from the people who have these experiences.
At the end of the anonymous survey, participants will have the option to provide their contact information. If contact
information is provided, the researchers may contact participants for a follow-up telephone interview.
Participants may receive compensation for completing the anonymous survey. Every tenth participant will receive a $50
digital gift card sent to an email address provided at the end of the survey.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Participants may be eligible for this study if they are:
• Aged 18 or older
• Have experienced psychosis, with or without a formal diagnosis
There will be approximately 100 people participating in this study.
