The KEMH Public Health Unit is asking for your views on mental health to better understand awareness, perceptions and attitudes related to mental health among Falkland Islands residents.

The findings from the survey will help inform a Mental Health project which is funded and supported by FIG and the UK Government Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (OHID). The project is being run by a research team composed of the KEMH Public Health Unit; Karen Rimicans, a founding member of Team Tranquil and an experienced mental health nurse practitioner with experience in mental health research; and Implemental, a UK-based social enterprise organisation.

To take part, we would appreciate it if you could complete this short questionnaire – it should only take about 10 minutes.

The questions in this survey are drawn from internationally recognised research tools, and will allow for comparisons to be made with other countries and territories.

Taking part in the survey is voluntary and you do not have to answer particular questions if you do not want to. Your responses will be completely anonymous – none of your responses or the information you provide can be connected back to you. Only the summary results will be reported and no person will be identifiable in any of the findings. FIG will store the anonymous survey responses in line with the FIG Data Protection Policy, and the data will only be shared with the research team mentioned above.

The survey period will run from 29 April 2024 to 9 June 2024

There are two ways you can respond:

1. Complete the online survey available at the following link: http://www.falklands.gov.fk/policy/consultations

2. Complete a paper version of the survey available from the Stanley Post Office or upon request from the KEMH Public Health Unit at the details below. Completed paper surveys can be returned to us using the dedicated collection box in the Stanley Post Office.
