Mental Health Research Group 

Welcome to the Mental Health Research Group at The University of Nottingham’s School of Health Sciences.

With an estimated one in four people experiencing a mental health problem at some point in their life, research in this field is increasingly important.

Bringing together leading academics in this field, our world-leading research aims to improve the lives and experiences of those with mental health problems, along with their families, friends and carers. Across several specific themes, our work promotes social inclusion, improves services, influences policy and develops practice.
