Find out more about our project focusing on communities

Traditionally, psychological professions have been working more in delivering psychological interventions than in preventing ill health. And, by seeing clients, their carers or families within services rather than by reaching out into local communities. However, there is a greater than ever policy focus on promoting wellbeing and preventing ill health, etc.

With this project we aim to explore how psychological professionals can contribute to psychologically healthy communities, and how to increase the uptake of psychological therapies in harder to reach groups. This project will also explore how to support public health initiatives that are aimed at enhancing psychological wellbeing in communities. We will also be looking into examples of good practice both across the region and beyond.
