The IoPPN is one of the world’s leading teaching and research centres in mental health related sciences and our research has a global impact

We work with universities overseas, industry, healthcare providers and policy makers both locally and globally, to ensure that our research, and training, is both relevant and far-reaching. Between 2012 and 2017 alone, 892 of our publications in the areas of psychology, psychiatry and neuroscience had partners from across Europe, 342 across North America, 330 in Asia Pacific and 200 across the rest of the world.

We have major international partnerships across multiple continents, including in Africa, where we are 40+ research projects in 30+ countries; in Europe, where we are part of major EU-funded programmes; and in Asia and the Americas, with over a dozen partnerships, including Peking University No. 6 Hospital, Shanghai Jiaotong University, West China Hospital, Sichuan University, Shenzhen Kangning Hospital, Southern University Science and Technology, Chinese University of Hong Kong, National University of Singapore, UCLA, and institutes across India, Peru and Mexico.
