Course Introduction

This group researches lived experiences of mental distress, centring on how individuals interpret, embody, manage and live with them. An integral part of these investigations is the close examination of professional relationships and identities of staff and service users, in the context of delivering interventions. The team is engaged in a variety of diverse research projects across a number of NHS trusts and voluntary organisations, with an in'depth focus on in'patient psychiatric and community settings. Projects include examining the impact of familial and intimate relationships on treatment and recovery, the role of emotions in the development and maintenance of mental distress and the impact of space and setting on well'being.
