Full description:

A group of researchers and clinicians from the University of Hull and the NHS in Hull and East Yorkshire is getting together to try to get more local research into mental health. We want to draft some winning bids to get research funds and we need help from patients, carers and interested members of the public to do this. You don’t have to have any research experience, and at this stage we are just looking for expressions of interest; you are not committing yourself! Because we want to recruit people who will be able to regularly join in working groups and meetings, and who know the local area, we are at this stage ideally just looking for people who live in Hull and East Yorkshire.

8th March 2017

8th July 2017


University of Hull
