Our Aims

The University of Edinburgh is recognised internationally for mental health research. There are many areas of strength including (but not limited to) psychiatry, psychology and clinical psychology, basic and clinical neurosciences, public and population health, education, medical anthropology, child development and child health, mental health informatics, artificial intelligence,  geography, cross-cultural mental health, global health, ethics, health inequalities, cultural heritage, arts, humanities and social sciences. There are very few universities within the UK with such a depth and breadth of expertise.

The EMH network aims to bring together these diverse strengths from across the University to provide an inclusive, University-wide infrastructure that supports new interdisciplinary collaborations and grant proposals, as well as to demonstrate a clear profile for the public, government, funders, and third sector organisations.
