Finding out you have Type 1 Diabetes: a Qualitative Study into the Experiences of Children and Young People

Researchers at UCL would like to recruit young people of secondary school age (11-17 years) who were diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in between January 2018 - February 2020. They want to understand how young people experience being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and whether it has an impact on their mental health.

The researchers hope the findings from their study will be a starting point into understanding how we can improve the diagnosis experience of type 1 diabetes. 

Volunteers will be asked to complete an online questionnaire and interview, and will receive a £10 voucher as a thank you for their time.
