Mental Health, Ageing, Public Health and Primary Care (MAPP) Research Group

The newly configured Mental Health, Ageing, Public Health and Primary Care (MAPP) group is located within the Department of Health Sciences at the University of Leicester.

We undertake clinically focused translational research to improve outcomes for populations complex health needs across the care continuum. We are an inter-disciplinary, inter-professional group with wide-ranging clinical and scientific expertise including mental health, frailty, rehabilitation and palliative care.

The group comprises academic and research staff, with a further staff in mainly educational roles and a much broader number of PhD students, Academic Clinical Fellows, undergraduates (undertaking sabbaticals/research projects) and NHS staff with honorary roles.

Our aim is to foster a cohesive working environment through supportive supervision, mentorship and regular informal group meetings as a means of sharing ideas, presenting research and receiving multi-disciplinary feedback.

We have strong links with the NHS and NIHR, locally and nationally.
