What We Do

Our research group specialises in developing and applying contemporary psychological science to address health-related challenges. Our focus is on improving the interventions, services, and technologies offered to individuals experiencing psychological and/or physical health difficulties – and advancing understanding of the psychological processes that promote wellbeing and personally-meaningful behaviour change.

Research interests within the group are aligned to the UK mental health research agenda 2020-2030, namely: mental health for children and young people (goal 1), links between physical and mental health (goal 2), development of new interventions for mental health (goal 3), and improving choice and decision-making in routine care settings (goal 4). Our research group connects with the broader university theme of Health and Wellbeing.

Research Themes and Sustainable Development Goals

Our research is embedded in the following University research themes, a unique set of areas that key into our goals as a civic university undertaking internationally significant research with local relevance, and as researchers engaged in the pursuit of excellence. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals badges represent our research and collaborations in terms of their contribution to the issues the world faces today and into the future.
