About our research


What we do:

We carry out research into child and adolescent mental health, working closely with colleagues in CAMHS, other teams in NHS Fife and other organisations.
Please see projects for information about our current work.
We investigate the needs of workers and parents/carers for training, information and support.
We build networks between academic staff, specialist clinicians and frontline workers.
We coordinate the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Research Cafe, to bring together people with an interest in research.
We provide support and consultation to frontline workers for their own research.


Other support:

The Research Lab is a public area for studying, browsing the library and using SPSS.
We provide a suitable learning environment for students’ research and work experience placements.
