We aim to improve our understanding of how mental disorders develop, and establish methods of treatment and prevention. Our research extends into risk factors (both biological and environmental) for the development of disorders and treatment strategies. Members of the Department use a range of scientific methods, including epidemiology, behaviour and molecular genetics, neuroimaging and clinical trials.
The research is funded from multiple sources such as research councils, government bodies and private sector grants. The Department is the focus for the Child Mental Disorders theme within the Biomedical Research Centre funded by the National Institute for Health Research.
