The quest study is a research project commissioned by Samaritans to help prevent suicide. For more information please click onto the flyer attached.
In 2012, researchers from the University of East London and the Tavistock Clinic published the results of a project aimed at assessing how guests experienced their stay at Maytree and how it impacted on them after leaving. The study found that a large majority of guests felt less suicidal during their stay and for months afterwards. Furthermore, many guests felt their stay was 'transformational', indicating that Maytree had a significant and powerful impact which led them to reappraise their lives.
