The Oxford Mental Health Economics and Policy research group brings together world-leading researchers in intersection of mental health, economics, and policy across the University of Oxford and it is hosted by the Department of Psychiatry.

The Oxford Mental Health Economics and Policy (OMHEP) group includes experts in mental health, health economics and policy from across the University of Oxford. OMHEP is hosted by the Department of Psychiatry and is affiliated with health economics teams at the Health Economics Research Centre in Oxford Population Health, and the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences.

OMHEP aims to:

  • Produce high quality economic and policy research evidence to inform mental health policy-making
  • Engage directly with patient and service user groups, charities and other stakeholders and decision-makers to translate scientific evidence into value-based health policy and clinical practice
  • Form strong links with providers, commissioners, practitioners and researchers in the University of Oxford and surrounding local areas
  • Advance methodologies used to understand the value and outcomes of mental health interventions

Following OMHEP's founding in 2022, we are expecting to add affiliated researchers and graduate students, as well as hosting events and seminars.

If you are interested in being involved with or hearing from OMHEP, please contact
