Share Your Story With The NEON Study

NEON appearing on Radio 4 ‘All in the Mind’ this week

The NEON study, is looking at whether people’s stories of recovery from mental health problems can help others. NEON is funded by the NHS, and they are currently running three clinical trials on an interactive website providing online access to recovery stories. Any participant over the age of 18, living in England, with experience of mental health challenges can sign up here: www.recoverystories.uk

The NEON trials are doing really well, and have now recruited more than 1000 participants from around England. This means that they’re more than halfway to their target. They would like to offer their thanks for all of the help that they have received so far in finding people who want to take part in their trials.

They’re still looking for trial participants, and will be recruiting up until the end of April 2021.

They’ve been working hard to tell people about what they’ve learnt during our study, and they’re now proud to announce that they will feature in this week’s episode of ‘All in the Mind’ on Radio 4. This will first be broadcast on Tuesday 17th November at 21:00, and then repeated on Wednesday 18th November at 15:30. The episode will include a discussion with Mike Slade, who leads the NEON study, and with a participant who is taking part in one of their trials.

They are still looking for new stories to use in NEON, with a particular focus on people and content that is under-represented. Information about how to offer a story to NEON is available at http://researchintorecovery.com/donateastory, which also describes four areas in which they would like to increase the diversity of their collection.

They expect the results of their trials to be available to the public in September 2022. Anyone who would like to read their open access publications, can do so here: https://www.researchintorecovery.com/research/neon/outputs/
