At the heart of our work is our Centre for Health Policy.  The Centre for Health Policy is working with New York University, Yale, the Illinois Institute of Technology, the Mental Health Foundation, Ulm University and the Finnish Association for Mental Health to tackle health and social inequalities for people experiencing mental ill health.

The CRISP project runs from 2016 to 2019. This transatlantic network connects leading EU and US partners to share and build upon state-of-the-art knowledge and programmes in the key dimensions of social inclusion and mental health - citizenship, recovery, stigma and public policy.

Our work on Health Policy is built on research.  Read about our Research on Health and Well-being
