Edinburgh Mental Health is a community of academic researchers, clinicians and partner organisations who work together to produce cutting-edge, impactful research within the field of mental health.

Our Members

Edinburgh Mental Health's membership is open to researchers and collaborators of all career stages and disciplines based at or affiliated with the University of Edinburgh. Since September 2023, EMH membership has almost doubled. We now have over 200 members working within and across a diverse range of disciplines on a wide variety of topics and themes within the field of mental health. Becoming a member of EMH offers the opportunity to network and collaborate with colleagues one might not have otherwise worked with on a host of exciting and meaningful, challenge-led projects.   ​ ​

Being part of EMH has given me lots of opportunities to interact with researchers from across the University, and it has introduced me to so many exciting areas of mental health research that I would never have known about. The events are always so informative and have helped me to develop my own research skills
