Research and epidemiology


The CHT, backed by the largest active queue to Europe, acquires a device by research in the fields of Psychiatry and neuroscience through its academic anchor (PRES Paris Sorbonne City) and scientific (Inserm, Centre of Psychiatry and Neurosciences). It represents a major innovation laboratory in terms of cohort studies to improve professional practices of doctors and caregivers.

The CHT today houses three academic psychiatry services: two at Sainte-Anne and one at White House at two universities in the same COMUE17. The site of Sainte-Anne welcomes also the Centre of Psychiatry and Neurosciences18, under a tripartite agreement Inserm-Paris Descartes-Erika.
Inspired by the national approach of territorial research devices, the CHT wishes to promote Paris a similar organization for the democratization of the tools of research, the transfer of knowledge and skills and the dissemination of knowledge.
The overall objective of this device is to promote multidisciplinary research in mental health based on a collaboration increased between sector and hospitals.
Searching structura around the following themes:

  • Psychosis and cognitive remediation,
  • Resistant depression and psychopharmacology,
  • CAW and addictions,
  • Emergencies and behavioral addictions.

These "psychiatric" themes can be added those of Neuroscience:

  • Platform for multimodal imaging,
  • Vascular disease and neurocognitive.

The White House EPS research laboratory


Research laboratory was created by the Public's health from White House Hotel on 19 December 2000. This unit is designed to facilitate the implementation of the research projects of all the teams of the institution and to encourage the promotion and including clinical studies on mental health in Paris.

For psychiatric areas north and East of Paris intramuros, the laboratory plays a major role with field teams to assemble and evaluate these projects, then present them in professional or scientific journals and at seminars and conferences.

The research laboratory initiates or participates in numerous research projects. The laboratory is involved in local projects the establishment, their assessment and psychiatric sectors, and on national and international conferences organized by the laboratory.

Partnerships and cooperation

The research laboratory is involved in one set of external partnerships, first at the level of international cooperation with psychiatric services from Athens in Greece or Gauteng South Africa, then Europeans in mental health, (ENTER Mental Health) research networks, and at the local level (Cité de la Santé at la Villette or in Video and mental health).

Other cooperation actions:

  • Elected officials and teams of Psychiatry Region Seeland, Denmark, conducted a study visit of the structures of hospitalization in 2008, for the establishment of a new hospital in their region.
  • Training professionals continues to London and Aarhus (Denmark) with the continuous training of the White House EPS service met on several occasions as part of ENTER Mental Health. Participation of this partnership to the European Conference on vocational training continues in Psychiatry in Ljubljana, Slovenia, June 2009.
  • In 2009, representatives of the University of Ljubljana participated in mounting a day on discrimination in Psychiatry, at the White House EPS.
  • The representatives of the Department of education in psychiatry from the County of Aarhus, Denmark, went to Paris in the spring of 2011 to present Danish strategies for therapeutic education in psychiatry.

Research – CH Sainte-Anne


The House chose to make development and strengthening biomedical research a major axis of its strategic in its medical draft positioning and care 2011-2015, by structuring the research activity and developing the research capacity of the site teams.

In addition, the award in 2011 of the double label Delegation to clinical research and Innovation (DRCI) and research clinic (CRC) in the House reflects the recognition of the dynamic research activity of our site through the themes of excellence of our mental health and neuroscience.

This double certification system and financial assistance it represents will continue the structuring and the development of research undertaken through the following objectives:

  • Continuation of the structuring and the development of our Delegation to the clinical research and Innovation (DRCI), which must play an essential role in the development and operational implementation of clinical research and innovation. In General, the DRCI are responsible for three essential missions, in support of clinical research, that are:-helps editing/design of research (from the idea to the funding) projects – the promotion of the test – mining analysis of the research data.
  • Develop and implement network platforms for structured research, at the forefront of innovation (plateau imaging, biological resources, bioinformatics).
  • Continue to initiate and develop research programs related to the themes of excellence of the institution that are mental health and neuroscience in order to constitute the Centre of excellence for reference in Psychiatry and Neuroscience (basic and clinical).

Another major challenge of clinical research of Sainte-Anne is the continuation of the dynamics of the nursing and paramedical research. This is supported by the fact that the Erika has had one of its research projects in care (project PIPA the CMME) retained the title of the first Programme Hospitalier de research nurse (PHRI in 2010) campaign now 2011 program of research nurse and paramedic (PHRIP).
