Remit of the group
Mainly mental health to date but has an interest in other areas in health e.g. Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.), fibromyalgia and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
Frequency of meetings
We meet when there is work or potential work. We link by email and phone.
Who can consult the group?
Any researchers but we expect to be fully involved in the research with our views and involvement respected and appreciated. We do not have any funds and members are often on low incomes therefore expenses and offer of payment towards time (even if these monies are given as donations to charity) are expected. We consider projects carefully and get involved in those projects we feel we can offer our skills and expertise which will benefit the most for the sake of the research and also the beneficiaries of the research.
