Community News & Features Call for participants in smoking focus group Book your place now Smoker or former smoker? LGBTQ+? Experienced mental health issues? If the above sounds like you, then LGBT HERO (the parent organisation of OutLife) needs you're help. We're looking for LGBTQ+ people who have experienced mental health problems like anxiety or depression (or any other mood disorders), and are, or were, smokers. We're looking for people to participate in a short focus group about smoking cessation. The 2-hour session will take place at LGBT HERO's offices in Brixton, London, and all participants will receive £20 in Amazon e-voucher for taking part. The session involves a series of talking activities where participants share their thoughts and feelings on various smoking cessation topics. Nothing too challenging! We are interested in the topic of smoking cessation because it is something that people tell us they struggle with and it is important to them. Whilst smoking cessation can be difficult for most people, we know that people severely affected by mental illness face additional barriers due to a range of complex factors. The project, which is funded by the VCSE Health and Wellbeing Alliance, will report on challenges and successes how people quit, and it will make recommendations on how interventions can be improved.
