Help needed

Fellow colleagues

I am a serving Prison Officer and POA member with 15 years’ experience, I am currently undertaking a PhD (Research Degree) with Huddersfield University, investigating the Mental Health of Prison Officers.

I am kindly asking for participants to complete an online survey, the survey is completely anonymous and no personal information regarding your identity will be recorded. This is completely independent research of my own undertaking and has in no way been commissioned by NOMS.

The survey is designed to investigate your current mental health and work related stress levels.
I am intending to use the findings to highlight the plight of Prison Officers under current working conditions through independent publications and also to help raise public awareness, ultimately to provide a further means to effect change in our working conditions and practices.

If you would like to assist me in this simply click on the qualtrics link below and follow the instructions,

The survey is open to all Prison Staff and Staff who work in Secure Psychiatric Facilities (all grades / roles etc.) and who currently work or have worked with prisoners in the past.

My contact details are contained within the survey link if you have any questions or concerns regarding the research please don’t hesitate to email me directly and I will gladly answer any questions you may have.

Many thanks in advance for your help.
