Sharon Horne is a lesbian researcher at the University of Massachusetts Boston who studies LGBTQ issues. She wants to better understand experiences that LGBTQ people in South Africa have had with counselors or therapists.

In this study, she is interviewing LGBTQ people who have been in mental health treatment (for at least 2 sessions) to learn more about their experience.

To Participate: You must identify as LGBTQ and be over 18 years of age. Participation can be done online through videoconferencing, by phone, or in person. March 11-April 5.

Benefits: If selected, travel expense will be reimbursed ($10.00). Estimated one hour. Also, you may learn more about yourself and develop new insights about your experience, and your participation may benefit LGBTQ people in the future. The study was approved by University of Massachusetts Boston Institutional Review Board (#2018231).
