Previous UHI research has shown that many island interviewees, both healthcare professionals and community members, perceived gaps in mental health services and they highlighted the difficulty of accessing specialist services and facilities, which are often based in Inverness, particularly in crises.

Prof. Munoz has worked with researchers from Texas A & M University in Kingsville to pilot the use of a modified Delphi method to bring community members together and facilitate discussion so that the community members can identify needs and solutions in their areas. This method has recently been piloted by a UHI team within the Western Isles. This seminar will reflect on the modified Delphi method’s use in the Western Isles, the findings from the pilot and the research gaps in island mental health research more generally.

The Scottish pilot was funded by the Scottish Rural Health Partnership.

Presenter: Prof. Sarah-Anne Munoz, Professor of Rural Health, UHI

Co-authors: Dr. Liz Ellis, Research Fellow, UHI; Dr. Sara Bradley, Research Fellow, UHI; Hereward Proops, Lecturer, UHI Outer Hebrides; Rachel Erskine, Lecturer, UHI Outer Hebrides

The Islands Matter webinars are the result of a collaboration between Dr Andrew Jennings Institute for Northern Studies UHI, Professor Frank Rennie UHI Outer Hebrides and Dr Beth Mouat UHI Shetland . This series of webinars was set up to address the hunger in the Scottish islands to hear from experts based in other islands worldwide, and to help inform the UHI Islands’ Strategy.
