The South Camden Schizophrenia Survey: An experience of community-based research

  • Chris Pantelis (a1), Jason Taylor (a1) and Patrick Campbell (a2)
Extract

The South Camden Schizophrenia Survey was started in 1985 with Regional Funding through the Locally Organised Research Scheme. Its overall aim is to explore the disabilities and needs of those individuals recognised by the services within an inner-city area as suffering from schizophrenia. The survey has also been the first step towards setting up a computerised case monitoring system, named ‘Safety Net’, which is being developed as a means of keeping track of the needs and progress of these vulnerable individuals. This enterprise will develop a community-wide perspective directed at targetting the deployment of services to those most in need. This article gives a preliminary account of the progress so far and highlights our experience of carrying out research within the community.
