We are at the forefront of efforts to turn psychological research into impact, making a difference to individuals, communities, policy makers and companies. Our faculty and staff partner with colleagues in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences on a variety of projects that are transforming lives in the United Kingdom and internationally. Our research has benefited a broad array of stakeholders including:

  • Government health services and public health agencies in the United Kingdom and abroad, including the National Health Service, Department of Health, and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence. 
  • Government agencies and charities in the areas of family policy, energy policy, and climate change policy including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
  • Health professionals who use clinical research evidence to improve clinical practice in such areas as stroke rehabilitation, the treatment of psychosis, and the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
  • Patients and the public who use public health, service evaluation, and research evidence to inform their behaviour.
