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
