The North Wales Mental Health Research Project
A History of Psychiatry in North Wales.
Over the past 15 years, colleagues at the Department of Psychological Medicine have collected a huge amount of quantitative data on patients from North West Wales going through psychiatric unit (Hergest) at Ysbyty Gwynedd (the main District Hospital in North West Wales). When analysing this data we have been able to chart a startling portrait of diseases rising and falling during the period 1995 to 2010. This material has so far been presented in a series of articles in terms of facts, figures and statistical analyses.
