I'm currently doing a study on attitudes to depression for my dissertation. I would be most grateful if you could take 10 minutes to fill in a couple of questionnaires online; all responses are completely anonymous.
If you would like to take part, you can do so by clicking here.
Many thanks in advance, and thanks to Funky for allowing me to post this.

Would like to help you, but can you tell me if somewhere on the questionnaires i will have to write to explain because not sure if i can be able to explain good on it, even if i do it keep in mind the answers will be by my understanding of the questions ( in hope i understand them all good )
That's pretty standard in these types of surveys, to make sure people actually read the questions and answers rather than just hit the same one each time.
Other standard stuff includes repeating the same question (sometimes with a very slight rephrasing), random question ordering, and one of the more nifty techniques I've read about recently, where you secretly roll a six-sided die for each question - on a 1, you MUST answer 'no', on a 6 you MUST answer 'yes', and on 2-5 you answer truthfully. The reason for this last technique is that it gives people an 'out' and makes it much easier for them to answer uncomfortable questions truthfully.
