Devon Recovery Research

and Innovations Group


The Devon Recovery Research and Innovations Group (D-RRIG) aims to be a hospitable peer group that welcomes anyone interested in research and innovations in mental health recovery. It has an open membership which includes people who identify themselves as activists, experts by experience and people who use services, supporters and carers, professionals of all disciplines, students and trainees, academics and researchers – all are welcome.

The group is hosted and funded by the Devon Partnership NHS Trust Research and Development Department. It is led by Glenn Roberts (Chair), working with Tobit Emmens (Managing Partner of R&D) and two joint coordinators, Elaine Hewis and Caroline Nicholson who represent a ‘lived experience’ perspective.
