Social Psychiatry & Population Mental Health Research Unit (SoPop)


The Social Psychiatry & Population Mental Health Research Unit (SoPop) is a large multi-disciplinary team of researchers and clinicians who contribute to knowledge, policy and services by conducting high quality research in the areas of:

  • mental health
  • mental illness
  • suicide prevention

We take the perspective that understanding mental health and mental illness cannot be achieved without acknowledging the social context. We apply this thinking to all our projects.
