Prospectus worked with the Mental Health Commission to develop a roadmap for a Mental Health Research Centre. The Commission had developed a preliminary design for a mental health services research centre and engaged Prospectus to assist in the development of the role and function of the centre. Prospectus led the Commission through a process to flesh out the key features of the centre in relation to scope, role, functions, funding, alliances, and timescale. Prospectus then tested an outline proposition for this centre with external stakeholders and reported their feedback to the Research Committee.
