Help to improve support for parents in hospital

The COPPI research team at the University of Sussex are looking for individuals who have experience of supporting an adult who has received inpatient psychiatric care during their years of parenthood. This could be a parent/grandparent, friend, co-parent, other relation. They may have taken responsibility for the patients child but that is not necessary.

They want to understand your experiences and get your input on the course they plan to deliver to parents while they are receiving inpatient care.

The involvement of carers/supporters is really important to the project and will help them to design the best possible course.

Interviews will be arranged to take place at a convenient time and can be in person or online.

If you know of anyone who would like to take part or would like to get involved yourself, please contact Abby Dunn on
