You are being asked to fill out a survey for our Physician Assistant Masters Research project, “The Perceptions of Mental Health among College Students with Acne,” IRB study number 23-09. The goal of this study is to examine the relationship between acne and mental health in undergraduate and graduate students aged 18-35 years at Clarkson University who have or have had acne. If this applies to you, the attached survey consists of multiple demographic questions and three validated dermatological and mental health surveys that will take approximately 15 minutes to complete in total. Survey questions will assess your current or prior acne severity and its effect on your mental health and daily life. No identifiable information will be gathered or is necessary for our research. Participation in our survey is voluntary but greatly appreciated. If you have any questions about this research, you may contact Ashleigh Dubanik (firstname.lastname@example.org), Mary Sherman (email@example.com), and Hunter Templeton (firstname.lastname@example.org), or our research advisor Dr. Deanna Denault (email@example.com).
