Developing Research and Recruitment While Fostering Stakeholder Engagement in a National Institutes of Mental Health-Funded Interventions and Practice Research Infrastructure Programs Grant for Depression
Abstract

Abstract:

Background: In the context of a National Institutes of Mental Health-funded Interventions and Practice Research Infrastructure Programs (IP-RISP) grant for the treatment of depression, a partnership was developed between a community mental health organization and a team of researchers.

Objectives: This paper describes the collaborative process, key challenges, and strategies employed to meet the goals of the first phase of the grant, which included development of a working and sustainable partnership and building capacity for recruitment and research.

Methods: This paper was developed through the use of qualitative interviews and discussion with a variety of IP-RISP partners.

Lessons Learned: Communication with multiple stakeholders through varied channels, feedback from stakeholders on research procedures, and employing a research liaison at the clinic have been key strategies in the first phase of the grant.

Conclusion: The strategies we employed allowed multiple stakeholders to contribute to the larger mission of the IP-RISP and helped to establish an ongoing research program within the mental health organization.
