Our scientific interest groups serve as communities for service users, researchers, policymakers, and organizations committed to address the early mortality health disparity in people with SMI through patient-centered outcomes research to discuss research in progress and develop new research proposals. Participating in one of these groups allows potential collaborators to learn about the Lived Experience Research Network data resources, research capabilities, and research priorities.
