The Mental health Specialty is one of 30 Specialties which bring together communities of clinical practice to provide national networks of research expertise. It is made up of research-interested clinicians and practitioners at both national and local levels. Our job is to ensure that the mental health studies that are included in our national portfolio of research receive the right support to ensure they are delivered successfully in the NHS.
We oversee research that deals with a wide range of conditions such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders and personality disorders. This means that we support a wide range of research studies that examine the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of mental health conditions.
