Each year, the Institute of Psychiatry at King’s brings together IoP academic stars to share their groundbreaking work with each other.
The Sloane Court Clinic supports neuroscience and
mental health research at King’s College London
The Sloane Court Clinic recognizes the need to support cutting-edge research. For this reason, we have chosen to support King’s College London, home to the world-leading centre for research, the Institute of Psychiatry (IoP) at the Maudsley Hospital, an Institute that has trained many Sloane Court Clinic clinicians and undoubtedly influenced the professional development of all of them.
The Institute of Psychiatry is addressing some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Mental health problems are chronic and disabling, as serious as heart disease and cancer, and often have no treatments. The World Health Organization (WHO) has identified mental illness as the number one source of disability from non-communicable medical causes in developed nations. Mental illness places a heavy burden on individuals, their families and friends and the community at large. Our understanding of the intimate workings of the brain remains poor, but scholars at King’s have the expertise in this area to make a difference.
As Europe’s leading centre for mental health and neurological research and training, the IoP is investigating the causes of and new treatments for mental and neurological conditions. They are leaders in developing best practices for dealing with the interface between physical and mental health. IoP scientists are accelerating the pace of research; they are developing new drugs and treatments, running clinical trials and finding opportunities for early intervention.
IoP researchers are developing comprehensive programmes to tackle a range of conditions, including eating disorders, depression, addiction, psychosis, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and stress-related disorders. They are also leading the world in finding better treatments for neurological disorders including dementia (particularly Alzheimer’s and vascular dementia), ADHD, autism, Parkinson’s, stroke, epilepsy, Batten disease, Huntington’s disease, motor neuron disease, and brain trauma.
Mental health problems are debilitating; with your help the Institute of Psychiatry can continue making life-changing breakthroughs.
There are many ways you can help the IoP to improve the mental health of people around the world.
