The Spectrum Centre for Mental Health Research


The Spectrum Centre conducts translational research into the understanding and psychological treatment of bipolar disorder and other related conditions.  We actively encourage input from people who have experienced bipolar mood fluctuations, their relatives, friends, partners, carers and also individuals who are interested in mental health research.

We obtain significant grant funding from the ESRC, NIHR, MRC, and Lancaster University enabling us to work collaboratively with third sector organisations and service users, both regionally and nationally.

Study with us

The PhD in mental health provides opportunities for future leaders in mental health to gain core research skills, as well as a deeper and more critical insight into mental health theory, translational research, and how this impacts on policy and practice.
