Carers sought for mental health research advisory group

The NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre is looking for carers of people with a mental health condition to join their Service User Advisory Group (SUAG). The SUAG is a regular meeting of people with an interest in mental health research and experience of mental illness, whether through personal experience, or as carers of somebody with a mental illness.

The group provide advice and feedback to researchers working in mental health, and review the research priorities of the NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre, a research institute that is a partnership of SLaM and the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience at King’s College London.

Taking part in the group improves the rigour, quality and relevance of scientific research, ensuring that it is of the greatest benefit to people with mental health illness and their carers. Meetings are held once every two months on Wednesday afternoons (4 to 5.30pm) at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience in Denmark Hill, London, and travel expenses and attendance can be reimbursed for group members.

If you care for somebody with experience of mental illness, or know somebody who does, and are interested in playing an active role in improving the quality and relevance of research into mental health, please contact Joanne Evans (joanne.m.evans@kcl.ac.uk) to find out more.
