Health and social care research helps us learn about why we become ill and what we can do to stay well. It advances our knowledge so that we can find new treatments, change the way we deliver care, prevent illness and improve the environment, health and wellbeing of local populations.
We support research that benefits people who use our services and the communities we serve. We have studies for children and young people, dementia, substance misuse, eating disorders, learning disabilities and mental health.
Mental ill-health affects approximately one in four people in the UK with an estimated cost to the economy of £70-100 billion annually.
Our aim is to use research to improve our understanding of mental illness and develop new treatments for the prevention of, and early interventions for, mental disorders.
We are looking for participants to take part in the following mental health studies. If you are experiencing mental ill-health, or know someone who is and are interested in finding out more please get in touch with us.
