Edinburgh Mental Health Interdisciplinary Research Network
The University of Edinburgh is recognised internationally for mental health research. There are many areas of strength including (but not limited to) psychiatry, psychology and clinical psychology, basic and clinical neurosciences, social sciences, public and population health, education, medical anthropology, child development, primary care, child health, mental health informatics, artificial intelligence, social work, geography, cross-cultural mental health, global health, ethics, human rights, stigma, poverty, violence, health inequalities, cultural heritage, arts and the humanities. There are very few universities within the UK with such a depth and breadth of expertise.
The EMH network hopes to overcome the challenges of bringing together the diverse strengths of these different disciplines across the University. A major aim of the network is to provide an inclusive University-wide infrastructure to support new collaborations and grant proposals, as well as to demonstrate a clear profile for the public, government, funders, and third sector organisations.
