Our research

Making care better

Our mental health research

We are one of the most active mental health research organisation in the south of England.  Over 20,000 people have taken part in our research studies since we set up the research department in 2006. These studies sit within our broad mental health research themes: dementia, young people, psychosis, brain and body, mood and anxiety, learning disability, personality, emergency & complex care and approaches to involvement & recovery. We want to encourage people to take part as well as make sure that the findings lead to changes in care and that patients and clinicians are kept informed.

The success of our research is a result of our patients who take part, our brilliant team and clinicians across our Trust. We have achieved this by paying attention to all aspects of the research process, from design of new studies, to delivery of existing research and to the translation of findings into practice.
