Ten Second Step bloggers join major mental health research study
Ten Second Step bloggers have submitted their work (previously published on Second Step’s website) to a new research project run by the University of Nottingham.
The study, known as NEON standing for Narrative Experiences Online, looks into the power of recovery stories to help us with our own mental health problems. Researchers have gathered recovery stories from all over the country including our very own Second Step stories.
Trials are now beginning for people with experience of psychosis, other kinds of mental health problems, and informal carers – to find out if by reading people’s experiences of mental health problems, experiences and journeys of recovery can affect your own mental health in a positive way.

And a big thank you to all of our bloggers for taking part in what promises to be a really interesting piece of research! The image above is from one of the blog posts included in the trial, written by Stuart about the importance of client involvement in his recovery.
