Converge Evaluation Project
Evaluating the impact of Converge for those who use it in York and Newcastle.
About the project
In 2020, Converge received funding from the Office for Students and Research England to evaluate the impact of the programme on those who use it in York and Newcastle. This includes Converge students (local people who have experienced mental health issues), university students, tutors, community groups and the NHS.
Over 2021 we worked closely with the main Converge team, including the existing Converge Evaluation and Research Team (CERT), to collect a wide range of data to help us understand more about what Converge means to people. Our final results will be ready in autumn 2022, and they will help us to support more people through Converge in the future.
How to get involved
Although our data collection phase has ended, you can sign up to our mailing list to be informed about future events and news, including our project conference on Monday 5 September 2022.
