Institute of Mental Health Research launches at University of York

Posted on 10 October 2022

The University of York has launched a new Institute of Mental Health Research aimed at reducing the number of people affected by mental ill-health and its impact on individuals, families and health services.

The new Institute will bring together researchers from a variety of disciplines and from across the world  to focus on designing more effective, efficient and equitable mental health treatments particularly in childhood to prevent further problems in later life. 

The Institute was launched at the National STEM Learning Centre at the University of York, on Monday, 10 October, to coincide with World Mental Health Day 2022.

The event was attended by Vice-Chancellor of the University of York, Professor Charlie Jeffery, the newly appointed Director of the Institute of Mental Health Research, Professor Lina Gega, members of the University of York academic community, and members of the public.
