Remit of the group

Mental health specific.

The BRC Service User Advisory Group is a group of service users that offers advice and expertise to the BRC as a whole and to each of its research themes (which cover most mental health diagnoses).

We are part of a research partnership between the South London & Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience at King’s College London. Our aim is to find new ways of preventing, diagnosing and treating mental ill health by translating advances in biomedical research into benefits for service users.

Frequency of meetings

Once every two months. (Meetings take place in Camberwell, South London).

Who can consult the group?

Researchers working with/for the Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) for Mental Health.
