Researchers at the University of Manchester are carrying out a study to evaluate an internet-based training resource that was developed to help raise awareness and improve knowledge about sexual and reproductive health among mental health staff and service users.
We specifically want to collect information on the use of the resource by mental health nurses with female service users. As part of the study, we have been running focus groups with mental health staff and women service users in various in-patient facilities in Manchester.
We will also be running a focus group with women mental health service users in the community in Preston on Wednesday 12 December 2012, 1.30-3.00pm, at the University of Central Lancashire, Adelphi Street, Harrington Building, Room 308.
You are invited to take part in the focus group in Preston if you are a female mental health service user and are interested in taking part in a discussion that will explore attitudes, views, feelings and needs for support with regard to sexual and reproductive health among women mental health service users.
Places are limited and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Please book a place by Friday 7thDecember.
For further information and to book a place, please contact Dina Poursanidou on 07792358092 or Konstantina.Poursanidou@manchester.ac.uk.
