The Direct and Indirect Behavioural Patterns and Risks in the Mental Health of Those Living with Chronic Pain: Research Proposal

Research Summary

My research is surrounding the mental health deficits faced by chronic pain patients. I have two chronic pain conditions, and the sheer agony of trying to maintain a sense of normalcy while being punished my own body for nothing more than existing inspired this research. Pain clinics are extremely difficult to enrol in, and the treatment they offer is almost laughable. Between wanting to prescribe you addictive medications with little to no monitoring and the on average 3-4 month period between appointments, it is hard to feel as though hope is not lost. My research investigates the link between pain conditions and the inevitable detonation of their mental health.
