An exciting research opportunity to develop a new mental health service!

The School of Pharmacy at the University of Lincoln have been successful in securing research funding from the NIHR to undertake a development and feasibility study. This is an innovative project that addresses to barriers to care for people in distress. The “Lifeguard” study will develop a response service for people in danger from suicidal ideation or domestic abuse to seek help from community pharmacies.
