Needs of women in Flint and Genesee County

Project Name:
Needs of women in Flint and Genesee County
Project Type:
Description:
The purpose of this study is to get the perspectives of Flint and Genesee County women and professionals who serve them on: (1) women’s greatest needs in the area, (2) especially perinatal women and mothers, (3) the greatest unmet mental health needs in the area. This will be a qualitative study with interviews of about ~150 women. Community members (especially Janice Muhammud, Bernadel Jefferson, and Kent Key) were involved in writing the interview questions, are involved in recruiting, and will help with qualitative coding and analysis. Mrs. Muhammud helps to interview participants. The plan is to bring participants together at the end, bring the themes back to everyone, and then work together to create initiatives to address the identified needs. That way, we create a network and women and organizations working together for women in the area.
