C&I’s academics have a strong track record in research around social interventions for people with mental ill health. The papers do not claim to be a comprehensive account of all evidence available in this area. Instead they are provided for those who are keen to know what research already exists, where to find it and what areas might usefully be further explored.
Please contact Yasmin Jennings if you would like any further information on the papers.
Our thanks to Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust for agreeing to share the work.
