Shape our research

If you would like to get involved in CPFT research and help shape our studies please check the opportunities below.

Current research involvement opportunities

If you are interested in shaping our research you can join the Service User and Carer Research Group (SUCRG).

The SUCRG has over 70 members who are interested in making a difference in local mental health and dementia research by sharing their knowledge and experience of a particular condition.

As a member of the group you will receive information about opportunities to get involved in local mental health and dementia research, training sessions and other relevant events. You will be supported to work alongside researchers and clinicians to develop research that benefits people who use our services.

No previous experience of research is required, and you can choose how and to what extent you want to be involved! If you have had lived experience of mental health issues or dementia, you are interested in research and you are willing to contribute and work as part of a team, you are welcome to join the group.

Watch the short video below introducing our User and Carer R&D Manager Iliana Rokkou and please get in touch if you would like to find out more or help shape research at CPFT.
