New study starting about living in the community after leaving an ATU

Joe Webb and Sandra Dowling from the Norah Fry Research Centre at Bristol University want to talk to people who have left an Assessment and Treatment Unit (ATU).

They hope that they can find out about what people who have left ATUs say about their lives now, what is working well, what they need more help with, and what they think could be done better.

If you would like to talk to them about what your life is like after leaving the Assessment and Treatment Unit, what your home is like, and what is important to you now, then please get in touch!

Or maybe you know someone who might be interested in this project? They would love to hear from you. You can contact them to find out more about their project.

You can contact them by email: or

Or by phone: 0117 33 10712 (Joe) or 0117 33 10974 (Sandra)
