Call for participants

What are the experiences of Black African clients who have dropped out of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) early?

Rusha Mohamed

Are you Black African and have you dropped out of CBT with the NHS earlier than planned?

I am conducting research to explore what factors may be contributing towards Black African people dropping out of CBT treatment early. The aim of the research is to understand what we could be doing differently to improve the experience of CBT treatment for people of Black African origin.

You will be asked to take part in a one hour interview with me over video call to talk about your experiences.

You can take part if: your ethnicity is Black African, you're aged between 25 and 45, you have had at least 1 CBT treatment session with the NHS, you permanently live in the UK, you have been discharged from mental health services for at least 1 year, and you are currently not experiencing significant mental health difficulties.

I'm not looking for 'experts' on the topic, and I am really interested to hear your thoughts and experiences. You will not be judged or personally analysed in any way and you will be treated with respect.

If you meet the inclusion criteria and would like to participate, please contact me by email on

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions

Thank you
