Research, education & training

"Research, education and training are at the core of what we do at St Andrew's, and are essential for us to provide high quality clinical services. Please read this section to find out about what we do and get in touch if you have any questions."

As a charity, our first and most important priority is to deliver excellent mental healthcare to as many people as possible.


Over the 175 years of our history this charitable mission has led us to:

  • openly share our specialist expertise, gained by caring for some of the country's most vulnerable and challenging mental health patients
  • undertake internationally recognised research, which improves our understanding of mental health, and translating this into improved care
  • pass on our spirit of excellence, innovation and enthusiasm to future healthcare leaders through our training and education programme.

As a charity we attract people who are passionate about the difference we can make to people's lives. This means that everyone at St Andrew's, from our Health Care Assistants to our academics, clinicians and professionals, create a learning environment of creativity and enthusiasm which is second to none.
