We are increasingly aware that mental health goes beyond strictly biological and individual aspects. Our mental health is influenced by many factors, from our social and work relationships, the environment or physical activity, among many others. Consequently, mental health research encompasses more and more areas, as well as specialized in its field of study, from biological mechanisms to broad social determinants that alter it.
The new research policies propose the value of interdisciplinary research with the participation of the quadruple helix, where citizens, social agents, public administration and the academic world work together to respond to the health challenges that are presented to us.
Is mental health research being approached according to these new conceptions? How and who defines the challenges that must be faced from research? Should we rethink what the priorities in research are?
