GMW are sponsoring a brand new research study funded by the National Institute for Health Research’s Research for Patient Benefit Programme (RfPB). This randomised clinical trial is run by Professor Paul French at the Psychosis Research Unit and is investigating whether combined individual and family cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is beneficial for people at risk of developing psychosis.
The research team have had lots of support from services at GMW and have successfully recruited their first person in record time. As a thank you to the team at Trafford EDIT Service and in particular to Kirsty Dosa who referred the first person, the research team have presented Kirsty with a special IF CBT mug and teabag!
The study is open to anyone aged 16-35 who may be at risk of psychosis and have a family member or loved one who would be willing to take part. Participants have a 50% chance of receiving the therapy. If you know anyone who may wish to take part or want to find out more please email Emma Izon or phone her on 07584 217 270.
