Have you been admitted to an adult Psychiatric Hospital in the UK in
the last 5 years?
I am looking for participants to speak to me about their experiences as a service user in psychiatric hospital.
I am particularly interested in experiences on the ward that might have made you feel “paranoid”, threatened, or unsafe.
Take part in a one-hour online interview for a new study to discuss your experiences.
Who am I?
I am a Trainee Clinical Psychologist at the University of East London and am studying for a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. As part of my studies, I am conducting the research outlined above.
What is the research?
I am conducting research into what makes people feel “paranoid,” suspicious, or unsafe on psychiatric wards with the aim of understanding what we could be doing differently.
You will be asked to take part in a one hour interview with me over video call to talk about your experiences.
Who can take part?
I am looking to involve adults between the ages of 18 and 65 who have had an experience of being an inpatient in a psychiatric hospital within the last 5 years. I am not looking for ‘experts’ on the topic, and I am really interested to hear your thoughts and experiences. You will not be judged or personally analysed in any way and you will be treated with respect.
