About the Study

N.B. The Quest Study has been completed. Thank you to everybody who participated for your valuable insights.

The QUEST study is a research project that aims to explore and understand why some people have thoughts about ending their lives, and why they consider or choose particular methods and locations to do this.

 

We would like to hear the stories and experiences of a range of people, including those who have thought about suicide but not acted on these thoughts, and others who have survived a suicide attempt.  If you would like to anonymously share your experiences of this please consider taking part in a brief online survey.
This study is being carried out by two teams, from Middlesex University and the University of Westminster.  The research was commissioned by Samaritans, with the aim of finding ways to reduce and prevent suicide attempts.
