Covid Response Programme
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the mental health of people all over the country but people who already experience inequality have been far more adversely affected. That’s why we’re investing in the Covid Response Programme to deliver targeted support for lone parents, refugees, people from Black and minority ethnic communities, and people living with long term health conditions.
Mental health in the workplace
Mental health problems are the leading cause of sickness absence in the UK.
We work to influence key policy decisions on mental health in all of the UK's legislatures.
Challenging mental health inequalities
The socioeconomically disadvantaged are 2-3 times more likely to develop mental health problems.
