Raghu, Nadia, and Amanda are affiliated with the Mary Seacole Research Centre, an interdisciplinary research
institute that brings together researchers from health humanities, psychology, environmental science, creative
technologies, theatre-makers, and more.
One of their current research projects looks at how rural and urban communities in Kerala, India understand mental
health literacy using theatre methodology.
Professor Raghu Raghavan, Dr. Nadia Svirydzenka, and Dr. Amanda Wilson and their colleagues are collecting narrative interviews and visual documentation of how rural and urban communities in Kerala, India understand mental health literacy using cross-discipline collaboration.
A Figshare project space has been created to store and share anonymized transcriptions and translations of narrative interviews for analyzing and discussion across colleagues from various institutions globally.
For researchers looking to embark on a similar area of research, they suggest as much forward-planning as possible to ensure you are able to share meaningful
data in a controlled, appropriate way.
