The workshop will focus on:

  • Networking and facilitating potential GW4 collaborations
  • The mental health research landscape in the GW4 and critical mental health & illness issues to help address by research
  • World café style round table discussions on topics (proposed by yourselves) to scope new ideas for potential GW4 Development Award applications (6 are attached to this workshop) or other funding applications
  • Research enablers session
  • Current funding landscape and opportunities
  • Next steps for the Network

The event is open to all members of the GW4 Mental Health Research Network, as well as GW4 staff working in mental health.


In addition to networking in the refreshment breaks/lunches, there will be a drinks reception and a networking dinner for all attendees at the hotel on the first evening. We have reserved some hotel rooms (funded) to help with those attending from outside the Bristol area.

The full programme will be made available in due course.
