The Queen’s Birthday Honours List recognises the achievements of a wide range of extraordinary people across the United Kingdom. CBE stands for Commander of the Order of the British Empire and is awarded for having a prominent role at national level, or a leading role at regional level. People can also be awarded one for a distinguished, innovative contribution to any area. Other recipients of honours at the event included soprano Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, British boxer Anthony Joshua, TV gardener Monty Don and Olympic equestrian William Fox-Pitt.

Professor Hotopf's research explores the interaction between mental and physical health. He has worked extensively in areas where mental health relates to other walks of life – including military health, mental health law, and epidemiological studies on the impact of mental disorders.  

Professor Hotopf says, “I am deeply honoured to receive this award.  It represents the contributions of a huge number of people in my research team working to improve the profile of mental health research and ultimately to benefit people with mental health problems.”
