Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS FT works with the Mental Health Research Network to promote research in mental health so that we can improve treatments and services for people with mental health problems.
The Mental Health Research Network (MHRN) helps researchers based at universities throughout the country to recruit people willing to take part in trials and studies through NHS services. It also works to involve people with experience of mental health problems, their family members and mental health professionals as advisors and consultants on research projects. The MHRN is part of the National Institute for Health Research and you can find out more about what it does for research teams and how to get involved in its work and the studies it supports by visiting its website, www.mhrn.info or contacting the East Midlands plus South Yorkshire regional office (called a hub) on 0115 823 1302.
