On behalf of Born This Way Foundation, Benenson Strategy Group conducted a series of online ethnographic diary interviews between young people and their parents/guardians to:
▪ Explore questions surrounding the family dynamics of mental health and wellness, and begin to understand what makes for supportive environments and relationships
▪ Further understand the ways in which young people and their parents/guardians feel connected or disconnected to their families and broader support networks
▪ Ethnographic diaries are a qualitative methodology and should therefore be considered directional. This ethnographic research will be used to inform the next phase of quantitative research that will dimentionalize family dynamics on a quantifiable scale, allowing for conclusive findings.
