Learning the Lessons

A national evaluation of community-based services for people with interpersonal problems.

This was a 24-month study funded by the Department of Health to evaluate 11 pilot services for people with interpersonal problems, in collaboration with Imperial College London, University College London, the Institute of Psychiatry and the University of Liverpool.
The study comprised of four research modules:

  • an organisational evaluation
  • a cohort study
  • a user-led evaluation
  • a Delphi Study

The Mental Health Foundation was responsible for the user-led module and is evaluating service quality from the perspective of service users and their carers.
