Work With Us
HEADS: UP is a research study that stands for Helping Ease Anxiety and Depression following Stroke. It teaches people to self-manage symptoms of anxiety and depression in a 9-week Mindfulness course for people affected by stroke. Mindfulness can be helpful, but some people find it difficult to complete the course or to practice at home.
We aim to recruit people who have had a stroke and family members/friends. We want to test HEADS: UP to see if it might be a useful self-management ‘tool’ and whether ‘home practice’ is possible. We will ask participants what they thought about HEADS: UP.
People who have had a stroke.
Family members/friends of people who have had a stroke.
Potential participants should live within travelling distance of Glasgow (the researchers will pay travelling expenses).
