Welcome to the PsyLife Research Group (UCL)
The PsyLife research group is led by Dr James Kirkbride, in the Division of Psychiatry, University College London. We are investigating the links between our social and economic environments and the risk of developing psychiatric problems later in life. Our research tries to identify which factors in our environment affect our mental health, and the pathways and mechanisms through which these may work.
On these pages you will find further information about our current and past research projects, publications from our group, and the impact our work is having on wider policy and society. You can find out what we’re thinking via our Twitter feed and blog, learn more about the science we do on our For the public, from the public pages, or learn more about mental health and where to find help and support.
