Black Thrive received a call out for people who have or had a mental health diagnosis. SLaM (South London and Maudsley) and Kings College London would like to hear about your experience as part of a study they are doing.

Details below:

Do you have concerns about your physical health?

We would like to hear about your experiences in getting physical health care

Research has shown that people with a mental health diagnosis have at least one physical health condition as well.

But there is much we do not know about:

How do people deal with their physical health?

How do they get information and support?  

Do people get the physical health care they need?

Are there special challenges people face if they have a mental health diagnosis? 


We are doing a study to find out more about how people with a mental health diagnosis experience physical health care. 

We are a group of researchers working at King’s College London. We come from different backgrounds -  academics, clinicians, service users - but we all share an interest in health inequalities.

We would like to hear from people with a diagnosis of psychosis, schizophrenia or bipolar affective disorder. We especially welcome the experiences of people who  identify as having a black, Asian or minority ethnic background.

All participants will be compensated for their time.
