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.
Psychosis directly effects 2-3% of the population. Social stress is thought to be a strong predictor of the risk of relapse in patients with a first episode of psychosis (FEP).
If you are 18-40 years old and have experienced your first episode of psychosis, or know someone who has and might benefit from this research.
Using smartphone-based monitoring, this study aims to understand and predict risk of psychotic relapse by measuring daily social stress filled in by participant.
