The Department of Psychiatry conducts research across the full spectrum of mental health outcomes from well-being through to mental disorders requiring clinical attention.

Our research on mental health and well-being spans the entire life course, from early childhood conditions, such as autism spectrum disorders, behavioural disorders and learning difficulties, through to adult onset syndromes (psychotic disorders, anxiety and depression, PTSD) and age-related mental disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease.

Day-to-day research activity is led by our senior staff, who often work in one or more of our major research groups:

For more information about the specific research activites of each group, the links above will take you to that group’s own website. You can also view all publications by members of the Department.
