Welcome to the web pages for Mental Health and Wellbeing.
Through our teaching and research, we aim to understand and improve population mental health and reduce health inequalities.
We conduct world-leading interdisciplinary research into the causes of mental disorders and emotional distress. We also develop and evaluate innovative treatment approaches for individuals, their families and the broader population.
Specifically, we investigate the impact and interaction of psychological, developmental, social, interpersonal, biological, genetic, environmental, lifestyle and health service factors on risk for mental disorder and population mental health. We conduct clinical trials of therapeutic and complex interventions for individuals with complex mental health problems including research dedicated to understanding the psychological, social, interpersonal and biological mechanisms of therapeutic change.
We work closely with partners across the university, within the NHS, the voluntary sector as well as with colleagues nationally and internationally.
