Maximising impact, sharing experiences and building capacity across the UK’s eight Mental Health Research Networks.


  1. Violence, Abuse and Mental Health Network

The VAMHN aims to reduce the prevalence of mental health problems among children, adults, and the elderly, by bringing together experts with different ways of thinking about violence, abuse and mental health - some with personal experience of these issues, others with expertise from the work that they do, and survivor researchers with both. We hope to understand, prevent and reduce the impact of violence and abuse on mental health.
