The Evidence Based Practice Unit (EBPU) bridges cutting-edge research and innovative practice in children’s mental health.
Founded in 2006 as a collaboration between UCL Faculty of Brain Sciences and Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, EBPU bridges cutting-edge research and innovative practice in children's mental health.
EBPU's vision is for all children and young people's wellbeing support to be informed by real-world evidence so that every child thrives.
Our mission is to bridge the worlds of academic research and clinical practice to ensure that training, tools and support are informed by the latest evidence.
Our values are at the heart of everything we do. We are:
- children and young people centred
- committed to evidence based practice
- open to challenge
- rigorous in our work
