Special Interest Research Group (Applications closed)

11 May 2021

We want to bring together researchers, professionals and experts by experience to ensure that research really benefits those who think differently.

For children and young people with neurodevelopmental conditions, mental ill-health is the norm, not the exception.

Yet we still know little about preventing and treating mental health conditions in this group, who are frequently excluded from research.

Our new Special Interest Research Group (SIRG), Embracing Complexity in Neurodevelopmental Conditions and Mental Health, will bring together people with neurodevelopmental conditions, carers, researchers and charities to address this gap and ensure that research really benefits those who think differently.

The SIRG is funded by Emerging Minds, a research network for children and young people's mental health based at University of Oxford.

Applications to join the SIRG have now closed.

We aim to contact all applicants with the outcome by Friday 9 July. If you have any questions at this stage, please get in touch with Georgia Harper.
