Research at the Department
Research at the Department of Mental Health includes basic research, epidemiology and clinical research in mental health, habilitation, substance abuse, child welfare and general rehabilitation.
The close collaboration between St. Olav hospital, municipal health services, child welfare and our research groups, creates appropriate conditions for clinical research.
