Collaborating to develop holistic health support for people living with severe mental illness
Emily Oliver & Ilaria Pina, Newcastle University, and Sue Webster, peer researcher
Our three schools’ funded project, WHOLE-SMI, explores holistic health promotion for people living with severe mental illness, an underserved population who have not typically been well-represented in research involvement and engagement. Here we present, with our peer researchers and community advisory group members, learning from this research.
Emily Oliver is Professor of Behavioural Sciences at the University of Newcastle and holds the award for the study ‘WHOLE-SMI: Wellbeing and HOListic health promotion for people with Severe Mental Illness’. Ilaria Pina is a Research Associate at the University of Newcastle.
