Title: The impact of Ethnicity and Immigrant Generation

We are conducting an online study that is exploring the impact of immigrant generation and ethnicity on mental health stigma and level of trust in mental health services. Previous research has consistently found minoritised ethnic groups tend to hold a higher level of mental health stigma compared to their White counterparts. This study is interested in exploring the role generation may play in this relationship.

You are invited to complete an online survey that will take about 15 minutes. You can take part if you:

  • Identify as White British, Polish British/Polish, British South Asian/South Asian (Bangladeshi, Indian, or Pakistani
  • (Only Polish/South Asian) Identify as a first or second generation immigrant
  • Are aged 18 years or above
  • Are able to read and write in English

Can you help us to better understand generalised anxiety and OCD? 

We are a team of researchers at the University of Oxford who are interested in better understanding generalised anxiety (GAD) and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). We are interested in hearing from people who identify as either having GAD or OCD, and those without current experiences of significant anxiety. We are hoping to develop a deeper understanding of factors that may contribute to distress in these conditions, with the hope of tailoring and improving psychological treatments for these individuals. 


If you feel you can help us, or you know someone who might be interested in supporting our research, please read our participant information sheet (see document below), and the poster (see document below) can also be distributed to anyone who may wish to take part.

The study involves a short telephone interview with the lead researcher, Dr Eloise Stark, followed by filling in an online questionnaire.

If you have any questions or would like to participate, please email Eloise Stark to set up a telephone interview at
