Research Method

The front cover of our OWLS 1 questionnaire

The OWLS study was a two part, mixed-method study where we explored the effects of the pandemic restrictions on people with severe mental ill health. We wanted to know how people had been feeling, whether they had been able to access health services, whether they had received the social support they needed and whether they had been able to use the internet to access essential services.


 OWLS 2, 3, 4 and 5

Those were going to be our follow-up surveys.
