Dental care in people with experience of severe mental distress


Closing date: End of June

Could you take part in a five minute survey on dental care for people with experiences severe mental distress in a study run by Queen Mary University of London?

By severe mental distress, they mean conditions such as schizophrenia and other psychotic illnesses, bipolar affective disorder, significant depressive and anxiety disorders, and dependency on alcohol or illicit drugs.

Service users, carers, mental health and dental care professionals, academics, funders, charities, foundations, professional bodies and other organisations supporting this group of people are all invited to participate.

This will help the study to find out what research would make a difference to people with severe mental distress, their carers and health professionals. Improving dental care in people with severe mental distress is part of supporting their recovery and improving their mental and physical health and wellbeing.
