We are delighted to announce that Adstac and the CaFI study are having there very first joint launch event in London! This event will give you a chance to learn more about both studies and how you can get involved both directly and indirectly. We encourage health professionals and community groups to attend this special event as we believe it could be very beneficial for service users and their families.
Caribbean/African food will be provided and the space to network with other community groups and health professionals.
What is AdStAC?
The Advance Statements Project for Black African and Caribbean People is a research project on getting Advance Choice Documents (ACDs) to work for Black African and Caribbean service users who have previously been detained under the Mental Health Act, their carers and mental health staff.
What is CaFI?
Culturally adapted Family Intervention also known as ‘CaFI’ is a multi-site randomised controlled trial (RCT) of a family intervention for African and Caribbean service users with a schizophrenia spectrum disorder and their families. People of African and/or Caribbean origin (including people who identify as Black British, Black African, Black Caribbean or Mixed heritage) are more likely to have schizophrenia or psychosis than other ethnic groups in the UK.
