Greenwood Institute of Child Health (Child and Adolescent Mental Health)

20 years of GreenwoodThe Division of Child and Adolescent Mental Health was founded in June 1986 with the appointment of Professor Rory Nicol, Foundation Professor of Child Psychiatry. The Division was originally accommodated in the Department of Psychiatry at the Leicester Royal Infirmary and moved to the Greenwood Institute of Child Health when it officially opened in October 1993, on the site of the outpatient base of the Leicestershire Child & Family Mental Health Service.  This was an academic development supported by the University of Leicester, the Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust and the Institute Benefactor, Dr Hugh Greenwood.

The Division has responsibilities in teaching and research, organises and teaches the undergraduate child psychiatry curriculum, is involved in teaching on other related parts of the medical undergraduate curriculum and actively supports and participates in teaching postgraduate child mental health.

There have been a number of books and chapters written by Greenwood Institute staff on and around child mental health over the years, browse through our catalogue showing details of these.

Latest project: Understanding Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
