  • To not disparage or unnecessarily criticise people or organisations.
  • To not use language or actions that could be considered to be threatening, offensive or discriminatory.
  • To respect individuality and to be aware of diverse needs.

We reserve the right to make appropriate sanctions where necessary.

Researching recovery: what we learnt from REFOCUS

REFOCUS was a five year research project led by Professor Mike Slade and colleagues at the Section for Recovery in London’s Institute of Psychiatry. At the heart of the study was a large scale randomised controlled trial across 27 sites. With the recent publication of findings, SRN Director, Simon Bradstreet, shares his reflections on some mixed results.
