Course Summary

Our research team works with national and international collaborators in a variety of professional backgrounds. We aim to provide benefits to patients and vulnerable people who suffer from mental health issues through high-quality research, development, and consultancy.

We involve practitioners, service users, and community partners. A key aspect of our research is working with vulnerable people and communities, mental health in ageing populations, coercion and safety, service user involvement and partnership working.

Through research we aim:

To form a better understanding of the nature of mental health, illness and recovery and the conflicting demands on good mental health and social care. This is achieved through high-quality research, development and consultancy that span a number of themes.
