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.
