LYPFT – Research Opportunity for Carers, Relatives or Friends

/, Mental Health/LYPFT – Research Opportunity for Carers, Relatives or Friends

People who have diagnoses such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder are more likely than the general population to have diabetes. 

The EMERALD study developed by the University of York is part of the DIAMONDS programme of research looking to improve the outcomes and services of people living with both diabetes and a mental health condition.

We are looking for carers, relatives, or friends to take part in a short interview to learn more about what it’s like to provide care for someone, understand how mental ill health and diabetes impacts on day-to-day life, and how diabetes care might be improved in future.

If you currently support someone living with diabetes and a mental health condition such as psychosis, schizophrenia, bipolar and would be happy to take part in a short face to face interview please contact Sue on the details below.
