The Closing the Gap: Health and Wellbeing Cohort (CTG:HWB Cohort) is an important resource that underpins the Closing the Gap network and allows us to approach people with severe mental ill health (SMI) to participate in the Closing the Gap network research programme.

Being a member of the CTG:HWB Cohort allows participants to be followed up over time and invited to take part in relevant lifestyle, health and wellbeing research.

The goal is to make it easier for clinicians, researchers and people who use mental health services to get involved in research.

This project is supported by NIHR CLAHRC YH.
