Psychiatry, Mental Health and Addictions

The Psychiatry, Mental Health and Addictions Research Group at the Vall d'Hebron Research Institute is a multidisciplinary team that over the past 13 years has focused its scientific activity on the research (both nationally and internationally) of clinical, therapeutic and etiopathogenic aspects of:

  • Neurodevelopmental Disorders (especially Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism and Fetal Alcohol Syndrome).
  • Personality Disorders (especially Borderline Personality Disorder).
  • Addictive behaviours (especially Dual Pathology and Smoking).
  • Transcultural Psychiatry.
  • Interconsultation and Liaison Psychiatry.
  • Resistant Major Depressive Disorder.
  • Perinatal psychiatry.
  • Child sexual abuse and maltreatment.

At international level, it participates and/or coordinates several European projects of great repercussion in the area of mental health. At national level, it is part of the CIBERSAM (Centre for Biomedical Research in Mental Health Network) together with other leading groups, conducting research of excellence.
