Welcome to the National Centre for Mental Health (NCMH) website.
The National Centre for Mental Health (NCMH) is part of the research infrastructure for Wales funded by NISCHR, Welsh Government www.wales.gov.uk/nischr.
The NCMH is Wales’ first Biomedical Research Centre. It brings together world-leading researchers, healthcare professionals, patients and carers to improve our understanding of mental health and illness and improve diagnosis, treatment and support for those affected by mental illness.
The NCMH is looking for thousands of volunteers from across Wales to join the Wales Mental Health Network (WMHN). The WMHN will enable research into understanding different types of mental illness to improve diagnosis, treatment and support. To find out more about the WMHN and how you can be involved visit Take Part.
For more information about who we are, what we do and how you can be involved please explore the website. You can also visit our blog (http://ncmhblog.wordpress.com/) to find out what our researchers are up to, or follow us on twitter (https://twitter.com/WalesMHN).
