About the Section of Women's Mental Health
The Section of Women’s Mental Health (SWMH) undertakes mental health services research with a primary focus on women’s mental health.
Our aims are to carry out research into the gendered determinants of mental health problems, the needs of women with mental health problems using epidemiological and qualitative methods, and to develop and evaluate interventions to meet those needs and inform health policy.
We have a particular interest in understanding the impact of mental health problems on women and their families and have developed an instrument to measure the health and social care needs of pregnant women and mothers with severe mental illness.
