About the MHRN-C Portfolio of Studies
We welcome any structured research activity where mental health is either the primary or secondary topic of interest. Studies eligible for the MHRN-C portfolio should involve face to face contact with NHS patients, Social Care service users or people involved with their care. We strongly encourage and support research engaging both service users and carers. Studies should be led from or recruiting participants from Wales.
All studies must have research funding in place before they can be added to the portfolio.
Co-adoption of Studies
In some situations we may also co-adopt studies that have their primary site in another UK country but where a site has also been identified in Wales. In this case, if the study is already on the NIHR portfolio, it would normally be automatically eligible for the MHRN-C portfolio.
Examples of the types of studies which we invite to be run on our portfolio
- Uk wide studies involving collaboration with the English MHRN.
- Large pragmatic randomised trials of complex interventions such as suicide prevention and early intervention in psychosis.
- Large cohort studies involving patients with the major psychiatric disorders including mood disorder and psychosis.
- Research to support policy development systems.
- National, regional and local development of strategies to support evidence based service development and commissioning.
- Responsive research to support policy initiatives.
