Our research

Our research helps us to improve care, treatments and services for patients, families and local communities. It allows us to explore and improve new and innovative treatments and therapies and provide options to people who use our services. 

We put patients at the centre of what we do by developing our research in collaboration with people who have lived experience of mental health problems and/or learning disabilities.

All patients who use our services have the opportunity to hear about, get involved in, and have a positive experience when taking part in our research studies.

Research is a partnership between the people who volunteer to take part, known as participants, and the researchers. Every year, the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) asks thousands of participants to give feedback on their experience to help improve the way research studies are designed and delivered, now and in the future, so that we can positively impact people’s experience of recruitment to, and taking part in, research.

If you have taken part in a study at Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, please complete the Participant Research Experience Survey (PRES).
