Overarching aims of the PSMD cluster include fostering collaboration and gathering of experts on a determinate topic, organising and promoting several Network meetings, providing administrative support, facilitating dialogue with the stakeholders, supporting grant applications and dissemination of the results of funded projects. The PSMD cluster will promptly respond to the European funding initiatives in the field of severe mental disorders. For example, it aligns with the European Commission’s ROAMER (A Roadmap for Mental Health Research in Europe). The PSMD cluster is highly multidisciplinary and includes basic researchers, psychiatrists, psychologists and neuroscientists. Further multidisciplinary collaborations have been established with industrial agencies and charities.
