Trauma Informed MH Services [TIMHs] – Bridging In-Patient and Community Practices


In-patient acute wards are sorely neglected when it comes to research. There is a significant challenge currently with environments characterised by increasing levels of violence, substance misuse, with high levels of staff turnover. A range of research methods, including case study, ethnography and stakeholder interviews, our research will throw new light on service user experience and staff practices, especially the work of MHNs, identifying the conditions which influence clinical outcomes through the process of transition between hospital and community. The research will inform the development of trauma informed environments and treatment pathways.
