Clinical trials

sunlight through the darkness imageClinical trials are a very important part of medical research.

Our trials help researchers discover new effective treatments for mental health disorders such as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and anxiety; where we not only examine possible new medications for the alleviation of symptoms, but also alternative treatments, such as new psychotherapy techniques.

If you have questions about any particular study or participation in general, please contact the study co-ordinator or our main office.
