“Artists for Healing”: Anxieties of Youth, Storytelling, and Healing through BTS
This survey was originally used in late 2019 to gather data for a paper presentation at the BTS Global Interdisciplinary Conference, which took place at Kingston University in January 2020. I am now conducting a second round of the survey to use in future projects and to compare to the previous data.

If you participated in this survey during the first round, you can still participate in round two! The data are being kept separately.

This survey asks a series of questions about your involvement in the BTS fandom and whether or not it has affected your mental health, coping, or healing. Participation in the survey is completely voluntary and should take around 10-15 minutes. You can choose to exit the survey at any time before pressing "submit." Data collected here is completely anonymous. This survey is not funded by any private or public entity, other than the researcher. You must be at least 13 years old to participate. Your return of this survey implies your consent to participate in this research.

Researcher information:
My name is Courtney, and I’m an independent writer/researcher as well as a long-time ARMY. You can find me on Twitter @writer_court (http://www.twitter.com/writer_court). If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Results of this survey will be used for projects related to BTS, which will be announced on my Twitter and/or website, along with info on where the results can be accessed. (My previous presentation is currently submitted for potential publication.) You can find me on http://www.thebtseffect.com

If you'd like to participate in another more in-depth questionnaire for future BTS-related projects, please see:
