NIHR Three Schools
The Adversity into Action Film Steering Group is pleased to share their film about patient and public involvement in health research.
In the film, they share their reasons for getting involved in research and what impact it has had on their lives. Tash, John, Sharon and Amy are all involved in mental health research projects funded by the Three NIHR Research Schools’ Mental Health Programme. They wanted this film to encourage others with experience of health problems to find out more about how they could influence research. The film and its messages were co-produced with people with lived experience of health problems.
Let us know what you think and how you use the film – we’d love to hear from you (contact Krysia Canvin, firstname.lastname@example.org).
Trigger warning: Please be advised that this film includes references to issues that viewers may find distressing, including trauma, bereavement and addiction.
