Open to Provincial Region, Patients partners in rural communities across the province
Research shows that social connections are especially helpful for those with mental health concerns (MHC; e.g., symptoms of depression, anxiety). Very little is known about what it is like to be there — as a friend, family member, neighbour – for someone 50 years or older with MHC, especially in a rural context. This study will examine what it is like to be a part of a support system for these individuals living in rural BC.
1. Participants will engage in a phone call with the researcher to review the study and what is involved. They will also be assessed for eligibility at this point.
2. Participants will be asked to complete an online Personal Information Questionnaire consisting of socio-demographic questions
3. Participants will complete a 1-1.5 hour interview over the UBC licensed Zoom platform (or telephone if required)
