Increasing social support for people experiencing psychosis.
LYPFT have a new research opportunity and are looking for people with psychosis to take part.
Social isolation can be a problem for people who experience psychosis and is linked with poor outcomes.
In the NHS people with psychosis receive medication, and sometimes practical support and talking therapies yet these treatments don’t necessarily help to increase social contacts.
A new 1:1 support programme has been developed to help people living with psychosis to increase the number of people they have social contact with.
The research is exploring whether this support leads to an improvement in peoples quality of life and mental health symptoms.
Research studies in other countries have been successful in helping people to make larger social networks, so researchers in the UK are now looking to see if we are able to help NHS patients in the same way.
People who fit the criteria and take part in the research will also receive up to £60 in shopping vouchers over a 2 year period.
