The Competence Centre for Transcultural Psychiatry (CTP) aims to contribute with new knowledge about how cultural aspects influence the progression of mental disorders, and to explore the role of culture in the assessment and treatment of mental disorders. Our primary focus is clinical efficacy research but we also do qualitative- and basic research projects. 

See a list of our projects.

The goal is that this knowledge can be implemented in the clinical work, not only at CTP, but also at other clinics treating the same type of patients. In order to achieve our goal, we work using a particular model where research and clinical practice are intertwined and interact in an ongoing process: the Treatment and Research Integrated Model (TRIM). This model involves systematic and continuous data collection from all treatment programmes. 

Read more about our goals and our strategy towards achieving them.

Due to the nature of our work, research outputs, e.g. doctoral theses or scientific articles, are usually the result of joint efforts.
