Understanding mental health systems and services — Mental Health / Iechyd Meddwl

Here’s a link to my first post for a new Cardiff University Mental Health Blog. The content will be broadly familar to people who have dipped into my personal blog in the past, insofar as I have chosen to say something general about doing mental health services research.

Working in collaboration with colleagues across the UK, including with people who have directly used services, researchers in the School of Healthcare Sciences at Cardiff University study mental health systems.

    Hi Ben, congratulations on your contribution to the new Cardiff University Mental Health blog.I have bookmarked the blog and shall return to it I am sure, it really is an excellent resource. I think in all the media flurry about brain scans and technical stuff (important as it is), it will remain important for the person at the heart of this issue and their place in the services we provide to remain very much in focus.

      Thanks, Ian. And I agree: it’s not an ‘either/or’ for me when it comes to basic science (on the one hand) and research into the organisation of mental health care and people’s experiences (on the other). There are lots of excellent and interesting mental health researchers in Cardiff, and this new blog could be a great place to bring some of the threads together.
