Mental health service provisions concerning LGBT+ individuals before and during the COVID19 pandemic in the UK

Project Details

Description

This work is being conducted as part of an awarded POST Parliamentary Academic Fellowship. The aim of this mixed-methods study is to examine mental health service provisions concerning LGBT+ individuals before and during the COVID19 pandemic in the UK. The project will fulfil two objectives:

1) a scoping review of available research published on mental health symptoms and disorders and service use amongst LGBT+ individuals in the UK before and during the pandemic;

and 2) interviews with patients, healthcare professionals, and parliamentarians on addressing inequities in mental health services for LGBT+ people in the UK before and during the pandemic. The work builds on my recent publication in the Lancet Psychiatry, entitled, “LGBTQ+ focused mental health research strategy in response to COVID19”, and addresses concerns raised by the Women and Equalities
