Research Opportunity – Negative Symptoms in Schizophrenia

/, Mental Health/Research Opportunity – Negative Symptoms in Schizophrenia

Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust has a new research opportunity available.

They are looking for the contributions of people experiencing ‘negative symptoms’ in schizophrenia or psychosis.

The research is looking to explore whether there is a link between people’s childhood experiences/relationships and symptoms in schizophrenia such as low motivation, social withdrawal and having a reduced range of emotions.

Although there is research finding a correlation between adversity, trauma and positive symptoms, less is known about the predictors of negative symptoms.

Participation would involve taking part in 2 x face to face meetings with a researcher over a 6 month period. Participants would receive £20 for taking part. The meetings would be held in a community location or NHS site in Leeds.

You can download a poster here for more information on the study.
