About us

The unifying scientific mission of the Centre is the understanding, prevention and treatment of mental and physical health problems, and the enhancement of health and well-being.

We are also research partners with NHS sites across the North West in both a research and clinical capacity.

Our research programme is embedded within a close collaboration with the NHS and other partners, primarily as part of the Manchester Academic Health Sciences Centre. This has facilitated a major programme of implementation and dissemination resulting in significant improvements and developments in prevention, services and care.

We are committed to the involvement of service users in our research and this has resulted in research which is world leading, relevant and implementable within services.
