National Strategy for Mental Health Research Workshop

Do you want to help shape a new national strategy for mental health research? We’re looking for researchers with experience of mental health problems to take part in a workshop on Wednesday 1st March in Cambridge.

Mind is working with the Department of Health to help develop a national strategy for mental health research. This strategy will ensure that research asks the most important questions and has the biggest impact. We need your help to design it.

We want to hear from anyone who:

  • conducts research related to mental health (regardless of discipline or approach)
  • has personal experience of mental health problems
  • can travel to Cambridge
  • is available on 1st March

This session is open to all mental health researchers with personal experience. You do not need to self-define as a peer researcher or be affiliated to a university to take part.

The workshop will last for around three hours and will include lunch. We can pay travel expenses and you’ll receive £50 to thank you for your time.

If you would like to take part, please email with the following information:

  • Your name
  • Up to 100 words about why you would like to take part
  • Up to 300 words about your research interests
  • Any adjustments you need to make this a comfortable experience

There are 12 spaces at this workshop, which will mean we may not be able to offer everyone a place. We will aim to recruit participants with a wide range of skills and experiences. We will get back to all applicants by Friday 24th February.
