Hi ? My name is Anushka Sarkar, and I am a Master's Student in Development Studies from NIT Rourkela. I am part of the LGBTQ+ community myself and am passionate about working for our community. So I’m doing a Master’s project on mental health among LGBTQ+ persons in India.
I am particularly looking for people who have had to suffer trauma and distress or emotional or physical abuse because of their gender identity or sexual orientation- and sought the help of professionals (like medical doctors, psychiatrists etc.) and/ OR were forced to seek treatment (like counselling, shock therapy etc.) by their family.
Of course, this is strictly for research, will be completely anonymous and will be conducted in the most sensitive and ethical manner.
I would be truly grateful if you could be part of my study.
