Ethics approval and consent to participate
: Ethical clearance for this study was granted by the University of New South Wales Human Research Ethics Committee with clearance number: HC190215. All the study methods were performed in accordance with relevant regulations and guidelines as approved by the Ethics Committee. Informed consent was obtained from all study participants as they provided either written or verbal consent before all the interviews. Written consents were provided by participants who participated in face-to-face interviews while verbal consents were provided by participants who were interviewed over the phone. No personal identifying information of participants was collected. No personal information was also attached to the field note as participants were described by a tag involving their background, the gender they identify as, age and sequence of participation. For instance, for a male identifying participant from sub-Saharan Africa, the data was named as SSA/M/18/1. This was used to avoid any personal identifying information. Participants that mentioned their country of origin had this information deidentified to further ensure strict confidentiality. Participants had their rights, including the right to voluntary participation and to withdraw, fully explained to them. Participants were also provided with contact details of professional psychologists, should they feel distressed during or after the interview sessions.
