New research centre looks to build mental health social work's evidence base...

One reason commonly cited as contributing to social work's ongoing struggle to assert itself in the medically-dominated world of mental health is the fact that the profession doesn't have the same research history or evidence-base as that of the medical profession.

So I thought I'd flag up a new research centre that's looking to change that by producing research evaluting the impact of social models of mental health care. The Centre for Mental Health Social Research at the University of York has been launched this week. The Centre is led by registered social worker and academic Martin Webber and you can check out more info on its research projects here.

The team are also looking for social workers and people with experience of using services to let them know what their research priorities should be - have your say here
