Professor Nikolas Rose is now the Co-director of the Centre for Society and Mental Health at King's College London. The centre looks at the changing world, considering the social factors that influence mental health. Experts across multiple disciplines work together to analyse the key social, economic and cultural transformations affecting our mental health.
Nikolas Rose and colleagues are undertaking a major programme of research on Mental Health, Migration and Megacities, initially in Shanghai and Sao Paulo. This project is part of a programme of work initiated by Professor Nik Rose, with a development grant from the ESRC, 2013-15, to examine the relationship between urban living and mental health.
