It is expected that, when conducting assessments, formulations and treatment interventions, students consider these and other cultural, social and economic origins of, and solutions to, mental health difficulties.

The School has extensive research space and a significant investment in research infrastructure and has just moved into a new building with state-of-the-art facilities with the Psychology Clinic located near Clinical Psychology staff offices.
