Service user needed for project to help patients with psychosis improve quality of life
SCENE is a research programme running from June 2017 to November 2022 that aims to develop and test a new intervention to help patients with psychosis overcome social isolation and improve their quality of life. We require a service user member of the study & Data Monitoring and Ethics Committee to monitor the safety of the research and ensure that it remains ethical.
