Our long term supporter Alison Faulkner, survivor researcher, is looking to talk to people who find public transport difficult to access as a result of their mental health difficulties.
The aims of the project are:
to identify the barriers to accessing public transport for people with mental health difficulties,
to identify the strategies people have developed, and
to come up with recommendations for policy and practice directed at transport providers, local authorities, mental health and disability charities (amongst others).
We are particularly looking to talk to people from racialised and marginalised communities, and people living in rural areas. Alison will be carrying out interviews and discussion groups, for which participants will receive a small payment. The project is funded by the charity Motability and managed by the Mental Health Foundation. Alison is a survivor researcher and has an advisory group for the project consisting of service users, survivors and survivor researchers.
