  • My PhD will seek to explore the use of friends/informal sources of support versus the use of formal sources of support for young LGBT people who have experienced domestic violence and abuse and whether social integration can explain their help-seeking decision. I will use a mixed methods approach through a survey using social media of young LGBT people and semi-structured interviews of young LGBT people who have experienced DVA to gain an in-depth understanding of these issues. It is important to better develop knowledge that can be used to improve the support young LGBT people experiencing DVA can access.[/cs_text]
