The National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health (NCCMH) is a collaboration between the Royal College of Psychiatrists and University College London.

We work with a variety of stakeholders, including world leading academics, clinicians and people with lived experience, to produce a variety of products.

These products include:

  • National guidance and pathways for commissioners and providers of mental health services
  • Independent systematic reviews
  • Competence frameworks
  • Service evaluations.

We're led by directors from both the Royal College of Psychiatrists (Professor Tim Kendall and Dr Shubulade Smith), and University College London (Professor Steve Pilling).

Our team includes:

  • Specialist researchers
  • Systematic reviewers
  • Project managers
  • Editors
  • A business support administrator. 

The work is overseen on a day to day basis by Tom Ayers (Senior Associate Director) and Clare Taylor (Associate Director - Quality and Research Development).

More information on our specific areas of work can be found in mental health care pathways and other work to improve mental health care.
