DCU logo

Are you a healthcare provider working in Ireland providing mental health care to African immigrants and Black and Ethnic Minorities (BME) individuals?

Who can participate?

Nurses, social workers, psychologists, psychotherapists, counsellors, voluntary sector key/support workers, doctors are being recruited to participate in a master’s research project. The healthcare providers must be over the age of 18 years with past and present experience of working with African immigrants and Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) communities with mental health difficulties.

What is the study about?

Research shows that religion/spirituality is a major factor in mental health and wellbeing of African immigrants and Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) individuals and addressing it, as part of their mental healthcare, is important. This study therefore aims to explore how mental healthcare providers understand and address religious/spiritual beliefs of individuals from the BME communities with mental health problems.

What will I be asked to do?

You will be asked to share your perceptions and experiences during a 30 – 60 minutes one-on-one interview via zoom online platform or face to face at a mutually convenient time. Study participation is completely voluntary and confidential.

How do I express my interest?
