Engaging mental health services’ users and their carers
This training and support project delivered six initial sessions and three other advanced ones.
This project also supported peer researchers in their participation in a research project in Lambeth examining the experiences of users of new services for people with severe mental illness using qualitative methods (in-depth interviews).
The project laid the foundation for building the capacity of local people who use health and social care services to both participate with academic research and to design and conduct their own research.
The funding body for this project is Guy's and St Thomas' Charity (via NHS Lambeth). Members of the project team: Markella Boudioni from LSBU and Sarah Corlett. To learn more about the academics working under this theme search our People Finder.
