The “EFFIP” project is a 5-year research study aiming to develop and evaluate an online resource dedicated for informal carers to gain information about psychosis, and glean support and advice from others in the same position.

This study is part of a bigger project entitled “EFFIP (E-support for Families and Friends of Individuals affected by Psychosis): A randomised controlled trial of a co-produced online intervention for carers” which is organised by a team of researchers at St George’s, University of London and King’s College London. The primary researcher is Jacqueline Sin. The study is funded by the National Institute of Health Research, and sponsored and insured for indemnity by St George’s, University of London.

From February 2017 for half a year, the study is aiming at building the online resource incorporating the ideas and views of many carers and individuals with lived experience of psychosis. Along this build process, they want carers to review their draft versions and give them feedback to ensure the final resource is as meaningful and useful for carers as possible.

The first focus group will take place on Wednesday 26th of March from 14.00 pm to 16.00 pm at the Institute of Psychiatry in Denmark Hill (16 De Crespigny Park, Camberwell, London SE5 8AF). Lunch will be provided and travel expenses will be reimbursed.

If you think that you might like to take part or clarify another further query, contact the researcher Jacqueline Sin at or 07817027035.
