Working together across organisations and teams helps us to share knowledge, achieve our aims faster and have a wider reach and impact.

However, working collaboratively can also bring complexity. With this in mind, the NHIP Community is designed to support colleagues to lead activity across partner organisations and teams.

To do this effectively, NHIP is currently undertaking a project designed to discover how we can best support colleagues to feel confident in reaching beyond their own team and organisation. We want to provide people with the tools they need to navigate the research landscape across our partners.

To date we have the information below, which includes resources on how to navigate the system. We will be developing content for this section of our website over the coming months, to help our partners connect and interact together. So please keep visiting as more information is added.

Mental Health

Mental health is, by its very nature, inherently complex. This inevitably makes mental health research complicated and diverse – with many mental health researchers being distributed across multiple organisations as well as spread across departments, schools or institutes. We have therefore created some resources to help our community navigate the landscape more easily:

• Roadmap of mental health departments and contacts across our partners.

• Do you want to connect with colleagues in mental health? Join our community of practice a space in which you can seek collaborators, share information and discuss funding opportunities.
