I would like to invite you to take part in our research study, which is investigating anxiety and depressive symptoms in the Spanish population during the COVID-19 outbreak.

We have an online questionnaire

That takes about 30 min to complete. We also ask that you please share this with all your networks, friends and family accross Spain. We greatly appreciate your assistance. Below is the invitation email which you could use to forward via email invitation.
