CCMH has developed an extensive international network of experts in mental health. We have gained a reputation for service innovation and commitment to user participation.
Our expertise was particularly used in the development and implementation of the National Service Framework, though we have also given opportunities for less mainstream innovators and critical voices within psychiatry.
Our work overseas
Centre staff also work abroad, and through consultancy for the World Health Organisation, we are major contributors to the improvement of mental health services in developing countries.
We work alongside other UK-based expertise to support local teams to develop culturally appropriate services, and to develop capacity for independent development.
