Lived Experience Advisory Panel (LEAP)

Get involved - have a say.


You are invited to join the diamond study LEAPs.  LEAP stands for a lived experience advisory panel.  

LEAPS are made up of people who live with an illness or condition every day. Panels typically have 6-8 people who work together to help researchers and policy makers better understand the everyday experiences and needs of people.

The diamond study LEAPs will assist in the design of new research projects, think about ways to improve mental health care and, keep the voice and needs of people with lived experience at the heart of research.  

As we develop new research projects we will contact you see if you are interested in being a part of a LEAP.  

Please let us know if you are interested in being contacted about LEAP memberships.
