Centre for Innovation and Evaluation in Mental Health
The Centre for Innovation and Evaluation in Mental Health focuses upon understanding the impacts of mental disorder on individuals, and the development and testing of new models of health and social care for people with mental disorders. It works across the spectrum of diagnoses and age groups from child and adolescent services, through those for adults of working age through to older adults.
There is a strong focus on multi-disciplinary working and service user involvement to design and deliver work of direct relevance to those providing and receiving mental health and social services in the UK and internationally. Centre staff are skilled in quantitative, qualitative and mixed methodologies.
The Centre’s work ranges from the development of new evaluative methodologies, through the development and testing of new models of service provision, to randomised controlled trials (pilot, exploratory and definitive) and other evaluations of new interventions and services. The Centre generates data that are of direct use to policy makers. Centre members are actively engaged in policy making regionally within London, nationally with the Department of Health and other Departments of State, and internationally.
The Centre is made up of the following research Sections:
