'Facilitating the development, set up and successful completion of mental health clinical research studies across Scotland.'
The Scottish Mental Health Research Network (SMHRN):
- Supports high quality research in mental health in Scotland.
- Set up in 2007 and officially launched in November 2009. (Slides and video footage from the event are available, including presentations from the Director, Professor Stephen Lawrie.)
- The network has adopted over seventy studies including large multi centre trials (SMaRT 2 and SMaRT 3), Imaging studies (TMRI-GC Imaging), genetic studies (Scottish Family Genetic Collaboration), pilot studies (Multiple Symptoms Study), commercial studies and epidemiological studies.
SMaRT Oncology-2 & SMaRT Oncology-3 Trials published in The Lancet
We are pleased to report that the SMaRT Oncology-2 & SMaRT Oncology-3 trials have been published in a series of linked papers in The Lancet.
The papers report on the prevalence of major depression in patients with cancer, and on two trials of an integrated depression treatment. The papers can be found by following the link below.
The Scottish Mental Health Research Network team supported these trials with their recruitment and follow-up, and would like to congratulate the Psychological Medicine Research group led by Professor Michael Sharpe.
