The Centre for Mental Health Research


As mental health and addictions exist within a complex cultural, economic, social, political and environmental context, research needs to be able to draw on a range of knowledge, expertise and approaches.

In undertaking its work, the centre adopts a multi-disciplinary and collaborative approach. It brings together groups and individuals from within The University of Auckland, and from national and international academic institutions, stakeholder groups and community organisations. Our relationships with Māori in this regard indicates the centre’s commitment to the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

Many of the research team hold joint appointments, strengthening the connections between the centre’s research outcomes and its practical application in clinical practice and service delivery.

The Centre for Mental Health Research is always keen to talk with individuals and organisations that are interested in becoming part of collaborative research endeavours or are looking for guidance, assistance or input around a research project. If you are interested in discussing new projects and collaborations please contact us.
