The Research & Innovation office host regular free event for GMMH staff, service users, and members of the public. Our events are a great opportunity to find out about the range of research occurring at the trust, how to get involved, what our research studies have found, and how our research has impacted on patients and the public.


Our events usually take place at The Curve in Prestwich and include a free buffet lunch, however we also offer online events as well.


Our events cover a range of topics (i.e. anxiety, traum2a, suicide), and include speakers from across the Trust (i.e. researchers and clinicians), from other organizations, patients involved in our research studies and from research advisory groups.


We have hosted several events in collaboration with our Research Units. These events focus on highlighting the findings of their research, discussing upcoming projects, and raising awareness on various topics. Our events are also co-produced with service users. Check out two recent examples of online events by the CaFI study who aimed to raise awareness on Why Race Still Matters (link coming soon) and another by PATHWAY study who discussed the results of their study (link coming soon here).


Our events not only showcase research findings but they also promote good practice in research. In 2019, we held an event on co-production in research and how to involve service users and carers in clinical research which was held in collaboration with six of our research units (Psychosis Research Unit, JUICE (Youth Mental Health Research Unit), CAMHS.Digital Research Unit, The Complex Trauma & Resilience Research Unit, Patient Safety Research Unit and Dementia Research Unit).


We aim to continue hosting online events and look forward to reintroducing face-to-face events with our Research Units and growing the number and type of events we offer.
