Self Care Academic Research Unit (SCARU)

The Imperial College London’s Self-Care Academic Research Unit (SCARU), is the first university academic unit dedicated specifically to the study of self-care. Imperial SCARU was formally launched at the 19th Annual Self-Care Conference in London.

SCARU’s vision is to be the leading academic base for self-care, focused on the contributions that individuals, healthcare professionals and other stakeholders can make to help people improve wellbeing, prevent disease and self-manage existing conditions and so called ‘lifestyle diseases’ including obesity and type 2 diabetes. SCARU’s mission is to make the absolute case for self-care by identifying and studying the ways in which individuals, communities and existing health and social care infrastructure and assets can improve people’s self-care behaviours and overall sense of mental health and general wellbeing, addressing in particular opportunities and barriers to self-care in the contemporary settings.
