About Research & Innovation at ELFT 
Research at ELFT has influenced public and professional debates on policy and clinical issues in mental health care on local, national and international levels.  The Trust has led over £20m in competitively awarded research grants and been shortlisted for the HSJ Award Clinical Research Impact for using DIALOG+ to improve patient outcomes in community mental health services.  

ELFT has a history of collaborative work with universities, including partnering with:

  • Queen Mary, University of London on the research Unit for Social and Community Psychiatry, a designated World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Centre, and the only one specifically for 'mental health services development' in the world.
  • Maltepe University in Istanbul, Turkey, to develop a master programme (MA) in Clinical Psychology with Body Psychotherapy Certificate, the first of its kind in Europe and Asia.
  • City, University of London, to foster an award-winning lived experience advisory group.
  • University of Cambridge, to tackle major areas of unmet health needs – including frailty, long-term medical conditions and narrowing health inequities.
