The aim of this project would be to review evidence relating to the influence of ethnicity on experiences and perceptions of mental health. More specifically, this project will help to identify and understand specific considerations for the mental health of people from various ethnic backgrounds.
This project will involve a few different steps:
- Liaise with key stakeholders (e.g., policy colleagues, third-sector organisations) to shape the review’s questions and inclusion criteria for evidence
- Search for and identify evidence from various sources (e.g., academic and grey literature, survey data)
- Synthesise evidence
- Disseminate findings to analysts and policy colleagues
The ideas for this project are tentative, and the intern would be encouraged to suggest alternative approaches.
This project would be based within a team of analysts (social researchers and statisticians) working in the area of mental health, with wider connections with analysts in Health and Social Care Analysis and policy colleagues in Mental Health.
