All psychiatry research at the Department of Clinical Neuroscience at Karolinska Institutet is carried out within Centre for Psychiatry Research, CPF. The research covers a number of fields of disease, including depression, anxiety, personality disorders, abuse and suicide.

Therapeutic research is carried out into medicines and different forms of psychotherapy. Research is also conducted on drug use and dependency. Psychiatric conditions are also placed in a social context. Issues related to the care and management of mentally disordered offenders are often complicated and involve knowledge from several different areas of medicine, law, as well as psychology. As a result, the forensic psychiatric research field refers to varied aspects of the interplay between law, medicine and the behavioural sciences.
