Mental Health and Wellbeing
Mental Health and Wellbeing is committed to maximizing population mental health and wellbeing in Scotland and globally. Our research and education are dedicated to:
- The explanation and understanding of the impact of psychological, social, interpersonal, biological, environmental, lifestyle and health service factors on life-course and population mental health.
- 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.
Our research focuses on new psychosocial interventions for common and complex mental health problems including Depression, Psychosis and Personality Disorder. We also focus on understanding, assessing and treating the biopsychosocial consequences of head injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease and other neurological conditions. We utilise large-scale epidemiological approaches to determine when, where and how to intervene. We are also investigating health trends and inequalities experienced by people with developmental disabilities. Integration of technologies is improving our understanding of the interaction between social, societal and biological factors, so providing a strong foundation for research into interventions to address inequalities in these groups.
