The Centre for Mental Health and Society (CFMHAS) is a methods based research centre. We conduct research that has direct translational application to the well-being of people with mental health problems, their families and carers, and to the mental health of the general population.

CFMHAS is a collaboration between Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board and Bangor University. It has office bases in Wrexham and Bangor.

Our research is multi-disciplinary, bringing together practitioners and researchers with a background in social, psychological and bio-medical sciences. We have a particular emphasis on mixed-methods research that combines qualitative and quantative methods to address complex problems.

CFMHAS is supported by a Steering Group

 Our major interests are:

  • Social care and carers
  • Substance misuse, particularly involving alcohol and prescribed medication, and dual diagnosis
  • The care and treatment of people with enduring mental health problems
  • Novel methods of research synthesis
  • Creativity and mental illness
  • Ethics including professional boundaries and spirituality, coercion, and violence in health settings
  • Anti social behaviour
  • Deliberate self harm in India
