Request for Healthy Volunteers in study on Eating Disorders and Ageing Process
St Patrick’s Mental Health Service is a not for profit organisation committed to the provision of high quality mental healthcare. As Ireland’s largest independent mental health service provider, we are involved in the development of new mental health treatments and prevention services. To ensure the highest quality of care and to improve our understanding of mental illness, research into mental health plays an important role in St Patrick’s Mental Health Services.
The research department at St Patrick’s is compromised of a multidisciplinary team of researchers. We aim to better understand mental health disorders and are currently investigating the impact of eating disorders on the ageing process. For this study to be possible we need healthy volunteers for our study Impact of Eating Disorders on Biological Ageing. This is a once off volunteering opportunity where you will meet at doctor from the research team at St Patrick’s Mental Health Services and complete a number of assessments which will take no more than 90 minutes. We require volunteers over the age of 18 years, fluent in English, without any mental health illness nor current substance abuse and with a normal BMI (Body Mass Index) between 18.5 and 25.0.
