A Bit About the Survey
What Is The LHNOS?
The ‘Legal High’ National Online Survey (LHNOS) launched in March, 2014 in an effort to learn more about which novel psychoactive substances (NPSs), popularly known as ‘legal highs’, are being consumed by young people and adults in different parts of the UK; where individuals buy and take ‘legal highs’; what effects are commonly experienced after taking ‘legal highs’; and what things influence individuals’ decisions to start taking, stop taking, or never take ‘legal highs’.
We’re also interested in individuals’ thoughts about how health experts could use different social media sites and Smartphone apps (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, WhatsApp and many more) to communicate news and information about ‘legal highs’ to people who are interested in taking them, and which social media people may use to share their views and experiences with experts and other individuals who take ‘legal highs’.
We wanted to create a website that gives people in the UK the opportunity to take a secure, anonymous, confidential, non-judgmental and user-friendly online survey specifically about novel psychoactive substances/’legal highs’; an interesting survey that people can complete in their own time, on a range of devices (laptop, Smartphone, Netbook and tablet), and access from a variety of digital and social media sites.
Please let us know if you think we’ve done a good or bad job!
