Division of Health Psychology

The British Psychological Society (BPS) is the representative body for psychology and psychologists in the UK.

As a member network, the BPS Division of Health Psychology (DHP) promotes the science, education and application of the discipline.

If you have any queries about health psychology and what it could do for you or your organisation, please contact the Division of Health Psychology at [email protected]


If you're passionate about enhancing population health and creating a better health service, supporting patients with their healthcare and helping people to change their health behaviours, then you can make it happen as a health psychologist.

Download: Our DHP recruitment pack is available in editable Word version and PDF version and includes 14 editable examples of job descriptions and person specifications from trainee to senior levels.

NEW! The DHP are creating a video to show what we do and the impact health psychology has had on society.

Occupational psychologists can boast that they've done done many things to change the world - including inventing the tea break - and we want the same for Health Psychology.
