Mental Health, Substance Use, and Service Needs, Access, and Delivery among Two-Spirit, Gay, Bisexual, Queer, and Other Men Who Have Sex with Men in Manitoba
This study is designed to respond to current to pressing knowledge gaps concerning the mental health and substance use impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on 2SGBQ+ cis and Trans men in Manitoba. The study explores the direct and indirect impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on 2SGBQM (with a focus on marginalized 2SGBQM) in Manitoba, including how COVID-19 impacts their mental health, substance use outcomes, sexual behaviours, and access to healthcare and other services. The study will aim to understand the effects of healthcare system transformations and altered service delivery in response to COVID-19 on both service providers and 2SGBQM receiving substance use/harm reduction and mental health care in Manitoba.
