Centre for Innovation and Evaluation in Mental Health (CIEMH)
The Centre for Innovation and Evaluation in Mental Health comprises a cluster of research groups with a shared focus upon understanding the impacts of mental disorder on individuals, and a common interest in the development and testing of new interventions in health and social care for mental illnesses.
Our approach is collaborative and multi-disciplinary with a strong focus on service user involvement, and our teams include clinicians, practitioners and researchers with direct experience of mental illness who bring the perspective of a service user to their work.
Within the Centre our 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. We generate data that is of direct use to policy makers, and our 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:
