Why is it so important to involve people with lived experience in research?

In this video, Sophia talks about finding out from a parent that there was almost no scientific research about something which pretty much every parent has wondered – how to deal with tantrums!

Are there questions about depression you think science should have tried to answer?  We’re inviting people with lived experience of depression, or working with people with depression, to look for the gaps in mental health research, quiz researchers and design their own experiment.

If that’s you and you’d like to get involved, please go to this link to read our participant information sheet and answer a few questions about yourself. We’ll then invite you to a private Facebook group where the project is taking place.
