TIR works. The Serenitas Foundation wants to prove it.

Research is at the heart of all the Foundation’s activities. After all it would be impossible to change the current thinking around mental health treatment without solid evidence.

The charity has co-ordinated a four country TIR Research Project based on the experiences of 170 people, so far. This is being written up ready to be submitted to peer review. Follow-up projects are being undertaken to cover control group and long-term study.

The evidence will be used to show potential funders that the TIR approach is more beneficial than existing methods and so better value for money.

Evidence will be gathered and collated for publication at every opportunity.
