Recovery Academy Research Project: Take part in our focus groups!

We would just like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported the Recovery Academy Research Project so far.

As part of the research, we will shortly be holding some focus groups and would like to invite everyone who has attended Recovery Academy courses to take part.

A focus group is a group interview where people are asked questions about a topic or area. We want to further explore the impact of the Recovery Academy, so this will be a great opportunity for students to give their views and opinions and for us to gather some detailed information about your experiences.

We are holding four focus groups at the beginning of August. Two are for people who have lived experience of mental health/substance misuse problems and family members or carers. The other two are for health professionals or GMW staff members. The groups should last around 2 hours each.
