Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust has a new research opportunity available.
They are looking for the contributions of people experiencing ‘negative symptoms’ in schizophrenia or psychosis.
The research is looking to explore whether there is a link between people’s childhood experiences/relationships and symptoms in schizophrenia such as low motivation, social withdrawal and having a reduced range of emotions.
Although there is research finding a correlation between adversity, trauma and positive symptoms, less is known about the predictors of negative symptoms.
Participation would involve taking part in 2 x face to face meetings with a researcher over a 6 month period. Participants would receive £20 for taking part. The meetings would be held in a community location or NHS site in Leeds.
