Get involved with research

How can I get involved?

There are a number of ways you could be involved with our research.


Involvement and Patient and Public Involvement

We run a number of patient and public involvement groups who advice on research and research subjects taking place at the Trust and the Institute of Mental Health. These groups run alongside research and offer advice, challenge, ideas and help to the research using the group members own lived experiences of the subject.


Research Engagement

The Institute of Mental Health has two newsletters which are sent our periodically to engage with people interested in our work. The Involvement at the Institute newsletter also includes any current opportunities to get involved in research, offer thoughts and advice and join any groups that are open to new members.


Research Participation

Participating in research doesn't always involve trying new medication. Some projects may simply involve completing a questionnaire or a short interview. Participating doesn’t always mean your own experiences, diagnoses or knowledge are the purpose of your participation, some research invites people with no experiences or extra knowledge to participate (this is sometimes called “healthy volunteers) or you might participate because you’re a carer or family member and your experiences are important to the research.
