How to take part

Here are the different ways you can get involved in mental health and dementia research.

We have a number of mental health and dementia research studies that are actively recruiting.  

You can find out more about all of our studies, including ones that are now closed, on our research studies page or you can download our latest study leaflets for mental health and dementia and memory studies.

Please get in touch if you'd like to have a chat about any of our studies:

If you'd like to use your 'lived experience' to get involved in shaping research, see our Use your experience to shape our research page.

We are part of an annual survey run by the National Institute of Health Care Research. We use this information to improve the experience for people taking part in our research studies. 

If you've taken part in one of our studies, we'd really like to hear your feedback. You can do this by filling in the participant research experience survey.

This is a UK-wide registry for people who are happy to be contacted about dementia research opportunities. It is open to anyone aged 18+ with or without a diagnosis. 

The site allows people to register their interest in taking part in dementia research. Once you have registered the information you provide will be used to match you to relevant studies in your area.
