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
