Hello! I’m doing research into mental wellbeing and factors related to su***de of wildland firefighters, and I could use your help. Wildland firefighters are almost completely unstudied when it comes to su***de, risk factors, and other mental health concerns. The research that I am doing is an important first step in understanding why wildland firefighters die by su***de, as well as what other difficulties they may be facing. While there is no direct compensation for participating in this study, your participation would provide valuable data for our study. Anyone who currently is, or ever was, a wildland firefighter is welcome to participate in this project. All of your answers are kept completely confidential and will not be shared with anyone in your family, workplace, or your personal doctor. We will not be attaching your answers to your personal identity in any way. This research has been approved by the Institutional Review Board at Oklahoma State University. If you’re interested in participating, have questions about eligibility, or would like to know more, please send me a direct message on here or an email at [email protected]. Thank you for taking the time to read this! To participate, please click on the link below:
