About Institute of Mental Health

UCL Institute of Mental Health brings together UCL’s interdisciplinary research and training strengths in mental health.

Mental health is one of the biggest challenges that the world faces. In the UK, up to 1 in 4 adults will experience a mental health problem in any given year. Mental illness is the largest single source of world economic burden and it has a disproportionately adverse effect on the most vulnerable in society.

Led by the Director, Professor Anthony David, the UCL Institute of Mental Health (IoMH) has been created to realise the ambitious vision of building a world-leading centre for research into mental disorders. IoMH will showcase and foster growth of UCL’s rich portfolio of groundbreaking mental health research. We aim to attract the best clinical academics and scientists in the fields of mental health and illness to work, train and collaborate with us. 

In acting as a focal point for UCL’s mental health research community, the IoMH will seek to add value to current research partnerships and help build future capacity.
