You have been invited to this event by the Culturally-adapted Family Intervention (CaFI) research team. CaFI is a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) funded, 54 month project starting in April 2019. It aims to test a new form of talking therapy with African & Caribbean families affected by schizophrenia. The study will take place in six NHS Trusts in England, including South London & Maudsley in London. The other locations include Manchester, Merseyside, Birmingham & Solihull, Coventry and Southampton.

 Before we can start to test CaFI (the therapy), we want to ensure that the therapy materials, including therapist training, are acceptable to African & Caribbean families. We have already done this with Caribbean families, who all liked CaFI very much. Next, we want to work with Sub-Saharan African service users, their family members and carers, and mental health professionals who have experience of working with Sub-Saharan service users/families.

This is where 3rd sector organisations come in. We would love to establish links with organisations who work with African service users and/or their families and carers to work with us.

Thus, it would be fantastic if representatives from organisations working with African service users and/or carers could come to this free networking lunch, where you could meet our London Lead Research, Dr Claire Henderson, and the Lead Researcher of the entire study, Dr Dawn Edge.
