Making a difference

Making a difference | The impact of our research



Making a difference is at the heart of what we do. World-leading research from the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) at King’s College London has made, and continues to make, an impact on how we understand, prevent and treat mental illness and other conditions that affect the brain.

Our academics work with other universities, industry, healthcare providers and policy makers both locally and globally, to ensure that our research is relevant and will produce useful results to impact mental health care.

Research from the IoPPN has led to the creation of much needed therapies for some of the most severe mental disorders and changes in how governments around the world think about mental illness.
