Volunteers needed for research study

Volunteers needed for research study on the experiences of family/ informal carers attending Recovery Colleges. 

Are you a family member, friend or partner of someone with a mental health problem? Have you had experience of attending a course at or enrolling in a Recovery College? Or are you currently the Carer Lead for your Recovery College?

You may be eligible to participate in a focus group about your experiences, and what might be done to improve these for informal carers attending Recovery Colleges. If preferred, you can discuss these issues with the researcher in an individual interview instead. 

Participation will involve:

  • A 1hr group discussion with other family/ informal carers
  • Likely to be on Microsoft Teams (or in person given sufficient interest).

You will be given a £10 gift voucher for your participation.
