One in four people will develop a mental health problem at some point during their lives. Mental distress can range from mild depression or anxiety to conditions such as bipolar disorder (manic depression) or schizophrenia where individuals may experience psychosis.
The Institute of Mental Health was launched in 2006 to help transform our understanding and treatment of mental illness. We are a partnership between Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust and the University of Nottingham and we are one of the leading mental health institutes in the UK, offering leadership and innovation backed by world class expertise.
Our Annual Report 2012 [Adobe Acrobat PDF - 2.73 MB] is now available. It was launched at the Institute's Foundation Anniversary Celebration event in November 2012.
The Institute has moved out of the Sir Colin Campbell Building to a new building on the University of Nottingham's Jubilee Campus. Our new address is Institute of Mental Health, University of Nottingham Innovation Park, Triumph Road, Nottingham, NG7 2TU. See Contact Us for full contact details.
