ESRC GCRF Big Picture

    Project Details


    The Big Picture focuses on understanding the lived experience of Indian young people around risk, recovery and resilience in relation to substance use and mental health. This £470,000 project is led by an interdisciplinary team of academics at the University of Leeds and the University of Brighton. We are working with multiple partner organizations in Assam, specifically, and India, more broadly, including MIND India and NIIRMAAN.

    The overall goal is to increase knowledge, enhance the voice of young people, and to inform practice through impacting policy and promoting public awareness.

    The bedrock of the project is our visual participatory method – PhotoVoice - which centralises the lived experience of young people, conveyed by them, in efforts to understand, prevent and intervene – at both a service and policy level - in substance use related mental health difficulties in India. Participatory film-making will also play a large role in the study.
