There are 2 events which I am organising in January at the Tavistock Clinic. The flyer is attached and below. The events aim to engage people who have experience of mental health conditions and carers in discussing a recent research study carried out at the Tavistock looking at the effectiveness of psychoanalytic psychotherapy for treatment resistant depression. The event also seeks to engage service users in considering what sorts of research should be carried out in future by the Tavistock. I would be most grateful if there was any way you could help to circulate information about these events so that any service users and carers who might be interested in coming can find out about them and decide whether to come along. Registration details are on the flyer. Please let me know if there is any more information you would like about the events, I am very happy to be contacted to answer any questions.
Many thanks and best wishes,

Share your views, comment, critique
The events will involve taking part in a focus group to discuss your thoughts about the
research, how it might or might not influence you as a practitioner, service user, carer or
commissioner; and what type of research you think would be useful in this area in the future.
We welcome the sharing of all opinions and comments. We will also ask you to complete a
brief online survey when you register as well as after the event and 3 months later.
Service users and carers taking part in the event and completing the surveys will receive a £20 high-street voucher to thank you for your time and can be reimbursed for up to £10 in travel expenses.
If you have any questions about the event before you register, please contact:
