The Health Service & Population Research at King's College London seeks to find evidence-based ways to put innovatory treatments and services to the test – not only to improve people’s mental health but also to enhance their quality of life.
Researchers in HSPR are developing ways of tailoring effective services to the age, gender or culture of people in need of help, discovering what sort of services offer best value for money and establishing how to reduce stigma and discrimination against people with mental illness.

Enable and promote service user and carer involvement in mental health research;
