The Cohort

We were in a unique position to assess the impact of the pandemic on this group of the population  as we had previously assembled a research-ready cohort of over 10,000 people with SMI, The Closing the Gap: Health and Wellbeing Cohort (CTG:HWB Cohort)

Our cohort was an important resource that allowed us to approach people with severe mental ill health (SMI) to participate in our research programme.

Being a member of the CTG:HWB Cohort allowed participants to be followed up over time and invited to take part in relevant lifestyle, health and wellbeing research. The goal was to make it easier for clinicians, researchers and people who use mental health services to get involved in research.

The CTG:HWB Cohort was supported by NIHR CLAHRC YH.
