Professor Seena Fazel, Forensic Psychiatrist, said,

"Improving outcomes for people with mental illness requires translating the highest quality research evidence into clinical practice. This means looking for this evidence wherever it exists and carefully appraising and evaluating it. Clear patient benefit drives this work forward."


Professor Cath Harmer
, Director of Psychopharmacology and Emotional Research Lab, said, 

"I work in an interdisciplinary area with world leading experts producing great science, seeing the translation of the science is so important. We need to understand how treatments work to improve interventions of the future and looking at this across drug based and psychological treatments is likely to be key." 


Associate Professor Kate Saunders, Director of Medical Studies, said, 

"The demand for Psychiatry and mental health specialists is great. We need to continue to provide the best education possible through our world leading teaching to ensure we produce excellent professionals who are able to meet the mental health needs of populations across the world."


Professor Daniel Freeman, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, said,

"The interaction between the research and what users of mental health services want is very important. This event has demonstrated the inspirational figures working in mental health science and shown some of the amazing things they've achieved."
