MindOut to launch its community research report on LGBTQ+ migration to Brighton, mental health and social isolation

Graham Robson August 26, 2022

Join LGBTQ+ mental health charity MindOut for the launch of the charity’s community research report, Pathways between LGBTQ migration, social isolation & distress: liberation, care and loneliness, at Friends’ Meeting House in Brighton on Wednesday, September 28 from 11.45am -2.15pm.

This research, a collaboration between MindOut and academics at the University of Brighton’s Centre for Transforming Gender and Sexuality, involved in-depth interviews with MindOut service-users who had relocated to Brighton internationally and from within the UK.

The project aimed to understand how LGBTQ+ people’s migratory journeys and experiences of loneliness and isolation, as well as belonging, contributed to their mental health in Brighton. The researchers used creative methods, like map-making and drawing, to help people capture their journeys and experiences.

This event will give an overview of the research findings, and provide the opportunity to discuss LGBTQ+ newcomers’ experiences of Brighton & Hove in the context of mental health, and to consider ways forward.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
