About the Institute for Mental Health

The Institute for Mental Health has been established to maximise the collaborative efforts of academics at the University, and builds on the strong existing partnerships with practice in the NHS, established through Birmingham Health Partners, Forward Thinking Birmingham, and Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust. Its objective is to ensure a sustained impact on public policy and practice, to translate research in neuroscience to improvements in treatment, and to improve the care and outcomes of those suffering from problems in their mental health, with a focus on interdisciplinary youth and life course mental health.

About the Centre for Human Brain Health (CHBH)

The CHBH is an interdisciplinary brain research facility established with the mission of understanding what makes a brain healthy, how to maintain it, and how to prevent and reverse damage.The Centre is home to state-of-the-art brain imaging facilities, which are used to uncover the mechanisms supporting cognition in both the healthy and the dysfunctional brain.
