Keen to promote ethical practice across all of the service areas we support, we actively integrate research into practice and strive to widen participation, particularly in postgraduate training. We always aim to adopt a positive, community-based approach to health and wellbeing that is both critical and challenges the traditional, medically modelled understanding of human distress. Put simply, we seek to understand people in the context of their relationships, communities and social/economic circumstances.

Always looking to enhance our national and international reputation, we now have the strong foundations in place to inspire a new era in Psychological Health and Wellbeing and take innovation, research, enterprise and teaching to a new level of excellence.
