The Collaborative is engaged in a number of research projects that aim to improve mental health outcomes and enhance program planning, access and quality of care. Our members are currently working on:
The Roshni Project is a program of research guided by the values of co-creation and aims to enhance the mental wellbeing of young South Asian women. The Roshni Project will co-create, with young women, a series of health promotion tools for four target groups – families, educators, faith institutions and mainstream mental health service providers – all of whom were identified by participants as integral to their recovery pathway. Tools and resources include short digital narratives, infographics and will culminate in the co-creation of a psychosocial intervention to strengthen cultural identity, self-esteem, resilience and adaptability. Did you know that across the world, young South Asian women disproportionately experience a number of mental health issues like anxiety, self-harm and trauma? Well, The Roshni Project wants to work with you to help prevent the onset of these health concerns and empower the women for generations to come. For more information visit www.theroshniproject.com.
