Have you struggled with eating and/or self-harm? Would you like to be involved in shaping the future of research on the relationship between these important issues?
We are looking for people aged 18-25 years with lived experience of either or both of these issues to join a discussion about a future research project. We are holding two PPI (Public Patient Involvement) focus groups as part of the Café Connect project next week at Nottingham Contemporary. Each group will involve 8-12 participants and last for an hour (scheduled from 4-5pm). It will be held in a quiet private space and the groups will be facilitated by Caroline Harroe, Director of Harmless (an award winning user-led support service) and Ellen Townsend, Director: Self-Harm Research Group from the School of Psychology at the University of Nottingham.
We can offer £15 Lovetoshop vouchers as a thank-you for your time and cover travel expenses (£10). There will be an opportunity to work closely with us to develop the research over future Café Connect events in Feb, May, June and July 2017. (This is optional – we understand that not everyone will want to do this but we hope that some people will.)
Places are limited so please email Ellen (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to be involved.
