The University of Birmingham is conducting a study: The contribution of the voluntary sector to mental health crisis care in England.

They would like to know how the voluntary sector is supporting people through a mental health crisis.

Did you get help from a charity?
Do you have experience of a mental health crisis?

As part of their research, they’d like to invite people to focus groups to share their experience of using voluntary sector services during a mental health crisis. You could be a service user, carer or family member (you just need to be over 16 years old and have used a service in the last two years).

Afterwards, they’ll share the findings of the research with you in a short written report. All the findings will be anonymised and you won’t be identified. They hope the results will help and improve the care and support that people receive during a mental health crisis.

Researcher Dr James Rees will be in Middlesbrough.

Date: Thursday 15th November
Time: 12 noon – 2:00pm
Location: St Mary’s Centre, 82-90 Corporation Rd, Middlesbrough TS1 2RW
