The mental health research partnership aims to make a difference to those working, learning and experiencing care within mental health fields.
The organisations have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) committing to active use of research findings to improve quality of care for patients with mental health issues.
Professor Koen Lamberts, Vice-Chancellor at the University of York, said: “Issues of mental health are a growing global concern and high-quality research in this area is an urgent requirement.
“Through this new partnership we aim to establish international recognition for mental health and promote research that sheds new light on interventions that could save lives and improve health and wellbeing.”
Colin Martin, TEWV Chief Executive, said: “The mental health partnership signifies a strong strategic priority from both organisations for sustaining and growing research in mental health.
“The partnership is committed to increasing public, patient and carer involvement. Research will be co-produced with people who have experience of mental health issues and their families and carers, with the aim of outcomes being used in every day practice.”
