Black and mixed minority women’s experiences of health and mental wellbeing


The project would focus on exploring Black (African and Caribbean) and mixed Black minority women’s lived experiences of health and mental health and wellbeing and their access to and engagement with healthcare. These women’s experiences are heard less frequently by health and mental wellbeing researchers and practitioners, and there are often presumptions made that they are ‘hard to reach’.

The project would therefore aim to listen to women’s experiences of health and mental wellbeing, and work with them to co-design and co-produce inclusive resources for health and mental wellbeing practitioners and researchers.
