We are interested in understanding Black women’s experiences of depression. In particular, how race and gender might shape these experiences (especially related to ideas about the “Strong Black Woman”). We hope that findings may enable Black women to access mental health services in the UK.

We are looking for people to help shape and provide feedback on our research (meeting twice a year). Please see attached document for the person description.
