This PhD broadly aims to improve the current understanding of suicidal ideation, behaviour and self-harm within LGBTQ+ young people aged between 16-25 years. Funded by the ESRC, the project follows a sequential, exploratory mixed methods design; built of systematic review, qualitative interviews, and a prospective longitudinal study. This project is coproduced with a LGBTQ+ Advisory Group, allowing those with lived experience of these behaviours and being LGBTQ+ to have an active say in the progression and development of this research.
