About This Study
Black transgender women are disproportionately exposed to chronic stigma (e.g., interpersonal discrimination and structural stigma) and barriers to healthcare, which are associated with poor mental health and delays in seeking treatment. Also, traditional treatment pathways may not be accessible for this population. Therefore, we want to focus this study on understanding how Black transgender women self-manage their health.

Participants will complete individual interviews and a brief electronic survey. The understanding we gain from this study will be used to inform the development of culturally-appropriate programs to combat the effects of chronic stigma exposure and improve psychological distress symptom management among Black transgender women.
