New resources for Patient and Public Involvement in Mental Health Research

How do you react if lived experience feedback means a substantial change to your study? What practical basics of coproduction can ensure your research has the most impact? We know that Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) is a vital component for creating effective mental health research. But, in practice, what does good PPI look like?

The Mental Health Research Incubator has launched a new video series on PPI in mental health research. They want researchers at any stage in their career to feel more confident in involving people with lived experience in their studies – and to follow best practices.

These videos are full of tips, encouragement and direction from three PPI contributors who have a wealth of relevant experience to share. The resources offer you guidance and reassurance about how to ensure good-quality PPI runs throughout your study.
