The NEON study: Narrative Experiences Online

Have you experienced mental health problems?
Are you interested in having access to other people’s real-life stories of mental health issues and recovery?

The NEON study has collected hundreds of stories from around the world, in text, video and audio form, and preliminary evidence suggests that these stories can help people feel connected to others including the storyteller. NEON is now starting three online trials of a new interactive website which provides online access to these stories, and looking to recruit people with experience of psychosis, other kinds of mental health problems, and informal carers.

  • No face-to-face contact is required
  • There is no need to visit the health service
  • You can take part from home, purely online
  • Usage is self-guided, done any time – You can use it as little or as much as they want
