Mental health and social integration (Mente)

The overarching aim of of Ellenor Mittendorfer-Rutz group is to bridge research traditions in psychiatric epidemiology, pharmacoepidemiology and insurance medicine in order to study ethiology, treatment and prognosis of mental disorders and suicidal behaviour. The research

group carries out epidemiological studies in three main research areas, namely: 1) ethiology and prognosis of suicidal behaviour; 2) mental disorders, treatment and work disability and 3) mental ill-health, work disability and migration. The conducted studies consider a variety of risk and protective factors and the effect of social insurance regulations, health care and treatment on marginalisation processes. Emphasis is also put on potential differences in these processes in the native population compared to different migrant groups. Advanced analytical models allow capturing the heterogeneity in ethiology and prognosis of individuals with mental disorders.
