Research call out: Attitudes About COVID-19 and Health

UCL logo

We are a research team at University College London investigating people’s attitudes and behaviours towards the COVID-19 pandemic and the public health strategies that have been put in place to tackle it.

The research aims to see if it is possible to collect people’s feelings using smartphone technology. The researchers also want to know how this potentially impacts mental health outcomes, particularly for those with chronic medical conditions.

Who do the researchers need?

2000 people over the age of 16 who have a smartphone and live in the UK.

What’s involved?

You will be asked to download the Air My Opinion app onto your smartphone. When registering for the study, you will send an SMS (text) message. Twice a day, you will receive a notification to answer a 1-minute question on the app about how COVID-19 is affecting you.

Once a month, you will be asked to complete a short 10-minute survey.

Anyone who chooses to provide their email address after completing each monthly survey will be entered into a prize draw for a £10 Amazon gift card.
