Survivor Research

Read More
Survivor Research specialises in foregrounding the perspectives of mental health service users and survivors in the thinking and innovation around mental health, wellbeing and recovery. Our particular expertise lies in bridging the gap between user/survivor advocacy and research/policy. We are particularly interested in making the views and opinions of users and survivors from black and minority ethnic and other marginalised communities an integral and critical part of the overall service user/survivor voice.
