Department of Psychological Medicine

The Department of Psychological Medicine performs research and teaching in psychiatry, health psychology, and consultation skills to the highest possible standard, and contributes to the delivery of high quality health care in the wider community.

The Department of Psychological Medicine was formed in late 2004 from the merger of the Departments of Psychiatry and Health Psychology.

It is headed by Professor Sally Merry and is one of the largest departments in the School of Medicine, with psychiatrists and clinical teachers operating all over the upper North Island.

The Department also houses the Werry Centre for Child and Adolescent Mental Health.
