Our ResearchOur research themes, approaches and details regarding upcoming projects for 2024 entry.
We offer our PhD scholars the opportunity to undertake research within one of the following five themes:
- Children, Young People and Perinatal Mental Health
- Common Mental Health
- Physical Health and Mental Multimorbidity
- Severe Mental Health
Each theme has a number of projects that supervisors who are experts in this area have proposed. Each theme also has two theme leads, who have an overview of the projects and supervisors within a particular theme.
Applicants can contact the theme leads to discuss potential PhD proposals. Theme leads will help you identify potential supervisors at one of our universities.
Given the complexity of mental health and neuroscience, our bio-psycho-social approach to studying the five research themes will enable our PhD scholars to understand mental health issues from different perspectives, and develop diverse solutions, reducing service-user exclusion, addressing wider systemic challenges, and increasing treatment choices. PhD scholars will be able to use one or more of these approaches within their research projects. Each ‘approach’ has two leads. Applicants may wish to contact the individuals below to discuss their PhD proposals.
