This is an invitation to participate in a research project exploring the links between touch and mental health. Participants will complete a short survey (less than ten minutes) that asks a series of questions about the amount of touch you receive in your life and your thoughts about the touch you receive. Participants must be over 18 and able to understand English.

This research project is conducted under the supervision and approval of the Southern Institute of Technology, Invercargill, New Zealand. Participants will be given the option to receive a summary of the project and findings. All responses are completely anonymous. For more information, or to participate in the study, go to:
