I would like to do a research proposal on the relationship between mental health and addiction (both alcohol and drug).
If an intervention for children with a mental illness is done at a young age will it decrease the likelihood of addiction in adolescents and above ages? This topic will add to current research.
It will help further the understanding of how addiction and mental health can be interconnected. Some of the ethical considerations to think about are the ages of the participates and the permissions that need to be obtained.
Other considerations are confidentiality and human subjects protection, objectiveness, honesty, integrity, and carefulness (Myers & Hansen, 2012).
