Request for support for Doctoral dissertation “Testing the Effectiveness of a model of psychoeducation on the QOL of women with mental health problems in resource poor setting.

Dear All,

My name is Gladys Mwangi. I am conducting my doctoral studies in Clinical Psychology at Daystar University in Kenya. I am looking for funding support to undertake my dissertation research:

This quasi- experimental (before and after with a control group) research aims to establish the effectiveness of psycho-education on the quality of women with common mental health disorders. This model The target population of my study are the Maasai speaking women in the semi-arid areas in Northern Kenya. This study is useful because it provides a framework for measuring QOL in marginalised and resource poor settings. It also will develop a model for treating mental health issues among poor women who have limited access to formal healthcare. The study anticipates that this model will lead to overall improvements in QOL.

It is in this regard, that I am making an appeal to individuals or organisations that are passionate about new knowledge and innovation on ways of improving QOL in resource poor settings to financially support the research.

I look forward to a positive response from you all.

Thanks for your support,

Gladys.
