The Mental Health Research Network is part of the National Institute for Health Research and our mission is to help make research about mental health happen within the NHS in England.

We work with everyone who needs to be involved in research projects – researchers, mental health professionals, people with experience of mental health problems, their families and research and development staff based in NHS trusts.

We support studies that are based within mental health services, within social care services and within primary care services.

The West Hub covers the whole South West from Gloucester, over to Hampshire and down to Cornwall. We have a steering group of service user and carers from across the region who ensure patient and public involvement happens in our area. We often have both paid and voluntary opportunities so if you would like to be on our mailing list please e-mail with your details.

Public involvement in research

The West Hub of the Mental Health Research Network can introduce researchers to people who have experience of mental health problems and members of their families who are willing to act as consultants, advisors, steering group members or researchers – and support people with experience of mental health problems, and their family members, who want to get involved in research projects.

We have regular opportunities for people with a lived experience of mental illness and their carers. If you would like to receive regular emails please e-mail with your details
