Mental disorders can have a major impact on the general state of health. But it can rarely be seen that a person is suffering from a mental illness and it is often a taboo subject. This means it is even more important to create knowledge about the disorders that are related to the mind and psyche. At AU Health research is carried out into a broad spectrum of mental disorders in both adults and children and into the correlation between mental and physical diseases.
The research within mental disorders at AU Health takes place at the Department of Clinical Medicine and in a number of research centres. In each, research groups focus their work on specialised areas of the research. You can read more about the research areas via the links below.
