Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing Research and Enterprise Group

Organization profile

Profile Information

Emotion badges to illustrate mental health and emotional wellbeing Research and Enterprise groupResearch in this group combines applied ‘real world’ empirical research with a range of theoretical and conceptual models along the spectrum of  understandings of what we mean by the terms mental illness  and mental/ emotional health, using insights from, community psychology, medical sociology, social policy and social work, counselling and psychotherapy to influence policy and practice

The researchers have a common approach in developing critical perspectives of the often narrow and limited definitions of medically defined mental illness and disorder.

There is an emphasis on the lived experience of those diagnosed with what are often complex and stigmatising conditions, foregrounding of user involvement in understanding experience of services and healthcare. In turn, collaboration with the statutory health and social care providers impacts on policy and in developing values-based and person-centred practice.

 

Our ongoing research projects embrace the following elements of research:

  • Social epidemiology of mental health and complexity
  • Psychosocial interventions and approaches to wellbeing and emotional health
  • Mental health social care and criminal justice
  • Suicide prevention and emergency mental health
  • User perspectives, lived experience and inter-agency working in integrated healthcare
