New ‘talking treatments’ research programme seeks recruits

The School of Health Sciences, part of the University of Manchester is seeking to develop research into ‘talking treatments’ within inpatient settings. To this end, the faculty is seeking to enlist eight to ten people living in Greater Manchester with experience of inpatient mental health services from either a service user, carer or family member perspective.

The main objective of the project is to ensure that research into ‘talking treatments’ is relevant to service users and is carried out in a respectful way. Participants will be asked to attend up to four meetings a year in central Manchester between January 2018 and December 2022. No qualifications or previous experience of research are required. Free training and mentoring in research methods will be given, and time plus local travel expenses will be reimbursed.
