Our programmes run across the UK and are at the heart of our mission to achieve good mental health for all.
Our programmes measure the different ways of preventing mental ill-health in communities and individuals across the UK.
We put our research on mental health to the test with programmes created for specific communities so that we can help prevent the development of mental health problems for individuals and communities. We work with partners and communities to build sustainable, evidence-informed programmes.
