Wellbeing and Psychological Health

About The Wellbeing and Psychological Health Research Cluster:

Led by Dr Robin Gutteridge Dr Wendy Nicholls

The Wellbeing and Psychological Health research cluster is diverse and inclusive in its membership. The general purpose of the group is to support and promote research into health and wellbeing, in the broadest sense of health as defined by the World Health Organisation; “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.

Our Research Cluster offers regular opportunities for colleagues across the University to meet, share and exchange ideas with the aim of developing collaborative and other research oriented activities. Cluster priorities are to offer collegial support and mentorship, knowledge exchange channels and support the development of grant applications, projects and publications. Cluster meetings tend to be Wednesday lunchtimes at approximately monthly intervals. Longer meetings are sometimes scheduled with a specific focus.

Membership is inclusive, open to anyone across the University with an interest and /or expertise in in wellbeing and psychological health. Cross fertilisation with other Research Clusters , Faculties and among Psychology communities of research and practice is actively encouraged. Post graduate Research students are very welcome. Please email Robin Gutteridge or Wendy Nicholls if you are interested in joining us.
